Joint development of LED fixture for space exploration

  • 20-Nov-2009 05:04 EST

Lighting Science Group Corp., a provider of LED lighting products, and the NASA John F. Kennedy Space Center signed a two-year agreement to jointly develop a high illumination and good color rendering LED light fixture for space exploration. The agreement calls for development of a lighting fixture prototype that will meet the unique demands of space equipment and space travel including control, vibration, off-gassing, electromagnetic interference, and other spacecraft issues. With a life of up to 50,000 h, LEDs require only infrequent maintenance, which is ideal for space exploration. LEDs are also easily controlled, providing smooth dimmability and constant color temperature throughout the dimming range.
