Inspiration Mars

Paragon supported the Inspiration Mars Foundation and Project by performing all required analyses, generation of data products, and design of an Environmental Control and Life Support System (ECLSS) and ECLSS Technology Development Unit (ETDU) that sufficiently demonstrated the required technologies to be applied to a 500‐day manned mission to fly around Mars and back.

The mission system consisted of a modified capsule launched out of Earth orbit using a single propulsive maneuver to achieve the Mars trajectory. An inflatable habitat module will be deployed after launch and detached prior to re-entry. Closed-loop life support and operational components will be located inside the vehicle, designed for simplicity and “hands-on” maintenance and repair.
