NUST MISIS specialists will take part in the design of an alternative spacesuit for the crew members of the new Russian spacecraft Orel, said Vladimir Pirozhkov, director of the Kinetics Engineering Center for High Complexity Prototyping at the National Research Technological University MISIS, industrial designer.
The development of a flight suit for the “Eagle” is carried out by the Research and Production Enterprise (NPP) “Zvezda”. In 2019, it presented a prototype of the spacesuit.
“We worked fruitfully with NPP Zvezda. This is a very serious enterprise with a glorious history. Then there was a break in cooperation. But the alternative always exists. And in the alternative version we will try to take an active part,” Pirozhkov said.
He did not specify which company could provide an alternative look for the spacesuit, but noted that it would be a Russian product. “This facility must be Russian, of course. I am sure that such strategic products cannot be purchased from Elon Musk or Chinese developers,” Pirozhkov noted.
