Our life-sustaining systems, technologies, subsystems and components build on more than 20 years of experience and spaceflight heritage with closed human environments for space travel. Many of our solutions have already been implemented and used in spaceflight, and we continually demonstrate the ability to reduce product costs through the use of commercially available components. We leverage our experience in flight system development, fluids in microgravity and life support development to maximize our customer’s return on investment.
Complete systems are available for air and water processing, environment and thermal management, waste management, environmental control, cabin instrumentation and science or payload systems. We also offer vacuum and space environment testing services, including specialized testing to determine component and system impacts resulting from exposure to lunar dust.
Our focus on reliability and safety has placed us in a position to capture opportunities from space agencies and the rapidly growing commercial space markets for:
- Suborbital flight
- Low-Earth orbit
- Long duration exploration
- International Space Station
- Lunar lander and surface operations
- Commercial Orbital Transportation Services
Many human support system products also have potential terrestrial applications in areas such as waste recycling and water treatment. They can also be applied to plant and animal science systems, ground-based air and water systems, naval submarine environments and plant-based controlled environments.
We offer commercial in-house testing capabilities to validate and verify operation of systems, subsystems and components. The test capabilities include vibration, acoustic, altitude and vacuum, thermal cycling, humidity cycling, performance, shock, lunar dust exposure and lifetime testing.
These combined capabilities provide us with the ability to conduct testing in a very time efficient manner and generate custom test scenarios when applicable. Other capabilities supporting testing include precision gas mixing capabilities and gas chromatography mass spectrometry.
