MOXIE Program

OxEon Energy has worked with NASA and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in the successful development of an SOEC stack destined for oxygen production aboard the Mars 2020 Rover.

Mars 2020 MOXIE Laboratory and Principal Investigator
MOXIE Stack Design

The NASA Mars 2020 mission will land a Curiosity class rover on Mars with a set of seven new science instruments. One of these instruments, MOXIE, the Mars Oxygen ISRU (In Situ Resource Utilization) Experiment, will demonstrate oxygen production by solid oxide electrolysis of Mars atmosphere CO2.

  • Flight-qualified for the Mars 2020 mission
  • Capable of withstanding shock, vibe, and compression
  • 99.8%+ O2 purity after 20+ operational cycles
  • Low cycle to cycle performance degradation on dry CO2
