Planetary Exploration Suits

ILC Dover is the only company in history with Planetary EVA spacesuits used successfully on another planetary body: The Moon.

ILC Dover’s Mark III Rear Entry spacesuit has been NASA’s primary spacesuit for planetary spacesuit testing since 1989. With our patented mobility joint technology, and decades of development work, we offer Astro™, which can be configured as a rear-entry, multi-bearing walking suit. This lightweight, comfortable suit has modular sizing to fit everyone and is manufactured to withstand extreme temperatures and vacuum of space.
