    Johnson Space Center Engineering is the world leader in design, development, testing & verification, and implementation of space suit and launch & entry suit hardware. Space suits are unique in that they are miniature, customized spacecraft. They must provide protection, mobility, and life support to the crew member during spacewalks. The launch & entry capability provides a survivable environment for the crew member during launch/landing mission phases and emergency survival and escape hardware to aid emergency events from bailout to Search and Rescue (SAR) anywhere on the planet.

    Requirements development and verification is a complex and tasking effort. JSC Engineering has mastered the process proven by generations of in-flight suit operations from Gemini, Mercury, and Apollo to present day.

    We have suits available that have gone through the rigors of certification testing with years of both Air Force and NASA flight pedigree and are qualified for manned spaceflight readiness. For more information on our suits select a link below.
