Environmental control and life support systems

Shaping the future of life support in space

Future missions into outer space will require life support systems that enable longer duration of exploration into deep space.

Collins Aerospace delivers proven reliability and best-in-class performance for Space Environmental Control and Life Support Systems (ECLSS). With our flight-proven ECLSS hardware and space flight experienced workforce, we are ensuring a consistent flow of advanced innovation and technology to prepare for the future.

We invest in resources to stay at the forefront of the ECLSS industry. We have leveraged our proven ECLSS technologies to provide streamlined components to the commercial space industry at a much reduced price. Our integrated approach takes advantage of state-of-the art tools and processes to provide comprehensive design, integration, qualification, production, and post-production support.

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.

Oxygen generation

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.

Water processing

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.
