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 right now.
Legacy spacesuits, like the ones used in Apollo, were designed to accommodate operations both inside the safety of the spacecraft and outside in the harsh environments of space.
Continuing to push boundaries in space travel, our Astro™ EVA (Extravehicular Activity) spacesuit and Sol™ LEA (Launch, Entry and Abort) spacesuit are commercially available and purpose-built for comfort, mobility and reliability.
Our advanced pressure suits have also been used to dive from near-space height (135,908ft) via a high-altitude balloon in the StratEx Program.
No matter the suit, no matter the purpose, ILC Dover has you covered.
