Space Suits – Planetary Exploration Suits

  • ILC Dover is the only company in history to develop a Planetary EVA suit that was used successfully on another planetary body; namely the Moon.
  • ILC’s Mark III Rear Entry space suit has been NASA’s work horse for planetary space suit testing since 1989.
  • ILC Dover’s patented mobility joint technology developed for the I-Suit was incorporated into the current state of the art Z-2 Exploration Space suit delivered to NASA in 2016.
  • Most recently we’ve developed NASA’s Z Series of space suits including the Z-1 and Z-2 suits. Both advanced prototypes are rear entry multi-bearing walking suits but differ primarily in that the Z-2 utilizes advanced carbon composites for the upper torso and brief elements and the Z-1 suit utilizes all soft fabric structures.
