Multi-Mission Consumable Analysis of Regolith Filters for NASA’s Artemis Program

The MTU Systems Engineering senior design project aims to pinpoint a gap in NASA’s Artemis program and propose a solution. Our identified gap involves reducing cargo mass and designing a process for multi-mission consumable use. We focus on lunar regolith filters. Our team is developing qualitative and quantitative models for filter lifespan analysis, consumable re-usage feasibility, and traceability from campaign to component requirements. Utilizing Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE), we will deliver an analysis and documentation highlighting the gap identified in NASA’s current lunar mission plans.
