New Generation Of Space Suits Focus On Mobility And Adaptation

New Generation Of Space Suits Focus On Mobility And Adaptation

Oceaneering International and David Clark Company are working on the next generation of space suits.

Kyle Studstill

With $500 million contracts from NASA, Oceaneering International and David Clark Company have been combining their experience with deep-sea and space exploration gear, designing the next generation of space suits. While the gear will be able to sustain life for 150 hours in an emergency and sync directly back to earth via in-suit computers, their design focuses on mobility and adaptability, adopting high-tech fabrics over heavier components.
