ILC Dover to Acquire Flexan
Anyone can try to make a spacesuit. Only ours have been to the moon.
ILC Dover has been the primary supplier of spacesuits for NASA since the dawn of Apollo. In the 50 years since then, we’ve strived for continuous innovation and improvement. NASA’s astronauts aboard the International Space Station are wearing ILC Dover spacesuits for extravehicular activities.
Our spacesuits have been worn during 250 space flights, six moon landings, and over 3,000 hours of spacewalks without a single failure—a record unmatched by any other spacesuit company in the universe.
