    Johnson Space Center Engineering is the world leader in human spaceflight for space suits, extravehicular activity, environmental control, and regenerations systems. Space suits are unique because they are miniature, customized spacecraft. Providing protection, mobility, and life support to the crew during spacewalks is a requirement that all space suits must meet.

    Experience has given us unique knowledge in the areas of air quality, potable water, urine monitoring, regenerative fluids, and hygiene activities. This knowledge supports human spacecraft design, space-system hardware design, flight-like simulation and testing of extravehicular activity hardware and operations, thermal systems hardware, environmental control systems, and integrated systems testing in pressures ranging from vacuum to one atmosphere.
