NASA Glenn Research Center is developing advanced seals to meet the demands of next generation aircraft and rocket propulsion systems. Dr. Steinetz will summarize NASA Glenn's efforts of developing seals that can operate from ambient through rocket exhaust temperatures (> 2000 F) without cooling and summarize the extensive test capability used to qualify seal performances under these extreme conditions. NASA programs benefiting from this research, that will be reviewed, include advanced commercial and military aircraft, the Space Shuttle, the Space Station Emergency Crew Return X-Vehicle, and futuristic reusable launch vehicles. Though the seal technology is being developed for NASA and military programs, there are many commercial and industrial spin-off applications.
