NASA made $228.5M agreement with Axiom Space for space suits

NASA’s Artemis program aims to return to the moon and establish a spaceport to facilitate human missions on Mars. To encourage the development of the space business, NASA announced a collaboration with space equipment developer Axiom Space to make space suits for the project with an order value of US$228.5 million.

The “Artemis Moon Landing Program” is divided into three phases, and the third phase, “Artemis III”, is expected to launch in October 2024. NASA said Axiom Space will be responsible for the design and manufacture of the spacesuit used on “Artemis 3”, which includes life-sustaining equipment, pressure devices and space electronics on the suit.

“We are excited to offer our expertise to meet NASA’s exploration needs while simultaneously serving our commercial customers in low Earth orbit and fulfilling future space station goals that provide a commercial space economy,” said Michael Suffredini, President and CEO of Axiom Space.

“Our modernized, upgradeable spacesuits will enable rapid upgrades over time to implement better and safer technologies, and ensure that our astronauts are always equipped with high-performance, robust equipment. We look forward to providing our space pioneers with the advanced tools needed to advance humanity’s permanent expansion from the planet. ” He added.
