Ideally located near Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, Oceaneering Space Systems (OSS) has provided NASA, the U.S. Department of Defense, their contractors, and commercial launch vehicle providers with space flight hardware systems and equipment for more than 35 years.
We complete turnkey design, development, manufacturing, certification, maintenance, testing,
and sustaining engineering for space-based robotics and automation, satellite servicing, human space flight systems, and thermal protection systems.
Our specialized engineering services and highly technical manufacturing capabilities enable us to execute projects with an uncompromised focus on safety, product, and mission assurance.
Specialty Engineering and Manufacturing Services
Understanding of critical components and complex operations enables us to offer a range of specialty engineering and manufacturing services. We provide systems engineering and integration (SE&I) and engineering analysis including finite element analysis, thermal analysis, and materials and processes (M&P) analysis tailored to meet project-specific needs.
Safety, Product, and Mission Assurance
OSS holds ISO 9001:2008 and AS9100C certifications. Our execution of complex projects for NASA, other government agencies, and the commercial sector has won us a number of distinctive awards including NASA’s George M. Low Award for Quality.
Our Product Assurance department oversees the management of our certified quality management system (QMS). The department provides quality engineering, quality inspection, system safety, reliability, availability and maintainability engineering, and configuration and data management services.
Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory (NBL)
Reduce Operational Risk, Lower Project Costs, and Improve Safety
From space to subsea, the NBL supports a wide range of commercial training, testing, and practice operations. By leveraging our extensive background in underwater operations, we ensure that operations are designed and executed safely and efficiently.
Once exclusively reserved for astronaut training for the Space Shuttle program, the NASA-owned laboratory now hosts training activities, systems integration tests (SITs), tool tests, and rehearsals of processes and procedures for projects prior to commencement.
The 6.2-million-gallon pool and 72,000-ft² high bay offer full oversight of testing and training operations in a controlled, secure environment.
We offer an ROV piloting training and certification course through VideoRay—the world's most popular small underwater ROV manufacturer.
