Enabling successful missions
Over a period of more than 40 years, we have developed and delivered thousands of products to support NASA and prime contractor intravehicular (IV) and extravehicular activity (EVA). We are a recognized world leader in the design, manufacture, testing, and maintenance of equipment that supports human space flight activities, and we also offer services to train astronauts—thus ensuring successful missions where failure is not an option.
We have used our expertise to develop multiple systems.
- A full suite of tools and equipment for assembly, maintenance, and repair of the International Space Station (ISS)
- Advanced life support systems for human spacecraft and spacesuits
- Technologies pushing the boundaries of future spacesuit and spacecraft design
Advanced Life Support Technologies:
Spacesuits and Liquid Thermal Garments
Oceaneering has developed spacesuit technology for NASA that will protect astronauts as they perform spacewalks and future lunar surface activities. NASA—one of our largest customers—has trusted us to protect its astronauts with advanced life-support technologies for nearly 20 years.
Technology for Spacesuits
Improved shoulder joint and elliptical helmet improves safety, increases comfort, and provides superior mobility.
Rear entry to increase efficiency and safety in executing missions
Liquid Thermal Garments
State-of-the-art design to increase comfort and safety
Nitrox Gas Breathing System
Enables astronauts and divers to work underwater longer, deeper, and more safely at NASA’s Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory (NBL)
