Life Support Products
Active Thermal Control Systems (ACTS)
Controls the temperature of cabin air and electronic components in an environment that precludes reliance on convective heat transfer.
Air Revitalization System (ARS)
Controls the oxygen, CO2, trace contaminants and humidity in the cabin air to maintain a habitable environment for the crew.
Provides oxygen for crew respiration through water electrolysis.
Universal waste management system
Provides a hygienic solution for collecting and processing crew waste solids and fluids.
Processes humidity and crew waste water from operations into potable water for reuse.
Fire Detection and Suppression (FD&S)
Monitors vehicle atmosphere for indications of a fire and extinguishes the fire if one is detected.
Portable life support system
Provides compact ARS and ATCS for the smallest crewed spacecraft: the Space Suit.
Advanced life support
Advanced technology development dedicated to reducing logistics, increasing reliability and “closing the loop” of ECLSS in space. These technologies will enable longer duration missions by maximizing the utilization of available resources.
