NASA Spacesuit Design Displayed at IFAI Expo
NASA brought a real spacesuit to display at their IFAI Expo booth. That's some serious bling!
Over the years NASA has used Thermetrics manikins to test spacesuits. Our one-of-a-kind "ADAM" 120-zone sweating, breathing thermal manikin has been a favored choice due to its ultra-high resolution and wireless/battery powered capability.
NASA is exhibiting here at IFAI because they are in the process of developing a new spacesuit design (the current model was first introduced in 1985) and the Expo is an easy way for the space agency to connect with the advanced textile manufacturers and suppliers they need to work with.
Thermetrics is at IFAI as well - look us up! We're in Booth #619.
