Project Title:

Development of a CubeSat module for in-situ evaluation of space lubricants

Project Description:

Currently a very small number of lubricants are approved for use in space, with only one (Fomblin Z25) produced in Europe. Evaluation and approval of new and existing space lubricants (for specific applications) is a long and expensive process conducted terrestrially, so the final assessment only really occurs on a mission in which failure may waste millions of pounds.

A CubeSat is a microsatellite built in units of 10x10x10 cm designed to allow low-cost experiments in space. This project aims to complete design and testing of a module, small enough to fit in a CubeSat, to evaluate the effectiveness of new space lubricants in space for a range of contact configurations.
