A new age of space flight has dawned, and UTC Aerospace Systems is at the forefront of innovation for the latest generation of platforms that will carry both cargo and crew to earth’s orbit and far beyond. Benefiting from decades of expertise in systems design and production for spacecraft, we are able to leverage unmatched capabilities to help ensure successful missions in the new frontiers of tomorrow.
Our Extravehicular Mobility Unit (EMU), or space suit, used by NASA is the world’s smallest spacecraft, with everything an astronaut needs to stay alive: oxygen, water, temperature control and CO2 regulation. UTC Aerospace Systems has worked side-by-side with NASA to evolve, upgrade and recertify the equipment to support extended periods of operation.
For more than half a century, UTC Aerospace Systems has provided critical life support technologies to help mankind explore the cosmos. From John Glenn’s first orbit of the Earth, to Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the moon, to the 200th spacewalk at the International Space Station, we were there to help make the missions possible and keep the crew safe. Today, we are leading the way with research and development in life support systems for a new chapter in space travel.
