This project explored active isolation for the creation of ultra-stable platforms
specifically designed for materials processing in space. Phase I work was successfully
completed. A preliminary assessment of isolation requirements was performed, and
a concept for a unique, fully inertial approach to active, platform isolation was
Potential Commercial Application:
Potential Commercial Application: The resulting materials-processing platform could
be applied to exploit fully the micro-g environment for development and manufacture
of alloys, crystals, polymers, micro-electronic components, and optical processes.
