Innovation challenge: methods to characterize the damage to an outer protective garment intended for extreme environments
Summary:
A US national research and development (government) agency seeks assessment methodologies of the wear on textiles subject to harsh foreign climate conditions. The challenge sponsor desires to enter a financial agreement in the form of a cash prize and a license agreement for the selected technology.
Description:
The deadline to respond to this challenge is December 3, 2015 at 5 pm Eastern Standard Time (EST). Expressions of Interest (EoIs) submitted through the EEN do not count as entries to the challenge. Full entries will require additional time and further instructions, which will be furnished upon submission of EoI. EoI deadline is November 24, 2015 to allow time for preparation of a complete entry.

A US national research and development (government) agency is searching for test methods or procedures to evaluate the deterioration of the fabric used in the outer layer of an environmental protection garment (EPG) when exposed to severe conditions including temperature and pressure differences and abrasion due to dust and dirt. The specific technical challenge lies in the novelty of the regolith materials to which the fabric will be subjected.

A total prize pool of US$15,000 is available in the form of three US$5,000 prizes. The sponsor will recognize prize winners through published announcements and individual profile stories. Successful applicants may also have the opportunity for future collaboration with the sponsor. Acceptance of prize grants the sponsor with an unlimited royalty-free license to use winning methodologies.
Technical Specification or Expertise Sought:
Entries will serve as a non-confidential introduction to the respondent´s technology and expertise and should address the following criteria:

The successful technology or procedure will:
¿ Provide a textile layup abrasion method capable of being performed with regolith.
¿ Indicate the size and quantity of particles that migrate through the different layers of the EPG.
¿ Provide a clearly defined method to catalog and quantify degradation of the layers including: cuts, abrasion, color changes, reduction in tear or tensile strength, reduction in thermal insulation.
¿ Have a correlation between separate administrations of the test of 0.7 or higher.
¿ Have an absolute difference between two repeated test results that lies within a probability of 95%.

And preferably will:
¿ Require no more than an hour to complete the test and/or run autonomously
¿ Not require specific textile expertise to execute the testing or interpret the results

Possible approaches might include, but are not limited to:
¿ Tumbling device to expose a mounted sample to simulant
¿ Modification of standard wear testing devices such as the Taber wheel, the abrader, or gelbow tester.
¿ Modification of non-destructive examination (NDE) techniques for textile applications

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
Responses from companies (small to large), academic researchers, other research institutes, consultants, venture capitalists, entrepreneurs or inventors are welcome.

A total prize pool of US$15,000 is available in the form of three US$5,000 prizes. The sponsor will recognize prize winners through published announcements and individual profile stories. Successful applicants may also have the opportunity for future collaboration with the sponsor. Acceptance of prize grants the sponsor with an unlimited royalty-free license to use winning methodologies.
