Abstract:

The object of this program is to evaluate the operation of a capillary type hydrogen-oxygen fuel cell while operating in an earth orbit. This report covers the preliminary investigation of the design and fabrication of a fuel cell orbital package. Operational testing of the orbital package and environmental qualification testing was begun. A second orbital package will be designed and fabricated based on information gained from the environmental testing.
