Abstract:
A robust and low-cost CO/CO2 sensor has been developed for the application of an enhanced early hazard detection sensor for space vehicles. Previously flown on HASP 2016, a new and improved design is put forward by presenting a completely redesigned sensor with a drastic reduction in size and power requirements. It is desirable to extend this sensor to environments outside the human habitable area of the vehicle so that the technology may be used to detect other threatening events such fuel leaks or other gas ventilation. In order to validate the sensors improved technology for its suitability in this area, the developed sensor for CO/CO2 measurements will be flown to high altitudes where it will encounter like conditions to these harsh environments.
