Pratt Whitney Rocketdyne Testing

On November 24, 2012 the National Solar Thermal Test Facility (NSTTF) began testing of the Pratt Whitney Rocketdyne (PWR) solar receiver shroud.  Fifteen days of solar testing are scheduled for this testing.  The flux levels on the shroud range between 100 and 500 suns.  The work is sponsored by PWR in cooperation with the Department [...]

Areva Solar and Sandia Labs Join Forces for CLFR Molten-Salt Storage

Areva Solar is collaborating with Sandia National Laboratories on a new concentrated solar power (CSP) installation with thermal energy storage. The CSP storage project combines Areva’s modular Compact Linear Fresnel Reflector (CLFR) solar design with Sandia Labs’ proven molten-salt storage system. This will be the first CSP integration with Sandia Labs’ Molten-Salt Test Loop [...]

NASA’s Solar Tower Test of the 1-Meter Aeroshell

This test is part of a series in support of NASA’s In-Space Propulsion Technologies (ISPT) program. An aeroshell allows a spacecraft to use friction from a planet’s or moon’s atmosphere as a braking force—allowing the probe to carry less fuel (for braking rockets) and permitting that now-available space and mass to be used for mission-relevant [...]
