"Hybrid Dust Mitigation Brush Utilizing EDS and UV Technologies"
A hybrid brush which utilizes electrodynamic dust shielding and ultraviolet technologies to remove lunar regolith from spacesuits and other applicable surfaces. The brush bristles contain electrodes that attract charged lunar regolith particles and clear them off the suit. Remaining, uncharged regolith particles are charged by ultraviolet emitters to enable removal by the system.
