Paragon has developed in-house world class engineering services to provide superior technical solutions to the problems our customers face in the most challenging of environments. Our specialization is the development, design, and manufacture of environmental life support and thermal control systems. The engineering services that we are expert in are listed below.
Environmental Control and Life Support System analysis and design
Paragon utilizes proprietary ECLSS models and a thorough knowledge of existing and next generation life support technologies to develop integrated system solutions for our customer’s most challenging life support needs. Recent life support system development activities include design of ECLSS solutions for flight tested prototype inflatable habitats, commercial crew transfer spacecraft, and terrestrial contaminated water diving suits.
Thermal Control analysis and design
Paragon uses sophisticated thermal modeling techniques and software to solve problems such as predicting vehicle performance at Mars surface operating conditions, passive and active control of hypersonic vehicles and satellite systems, and cabin thermal control for human and cargo transport in sea and in space. Paragon’s “complete vehicle” approach produces elegant, integrated, lightweight, and highly operable thermal control solutions.
Paragon is expert in systems engineering due to the simple fact that our core competencies of environmental and thermal control touch on all aspects of vehicle design and operation. Using a structured and value-added approach, Paragon provides systems engineering services including requirements analysis, synthesis and decomposition, functional and behavioral analysis, systems sensitivity and trades analysis, full vehicle schematics, and optimization of the complete vehicle – not just the subsystems.
Applied Research and Development
Paragon has proven performance in developing next generation environmental and thermal control components and subsystems that routinely exceed customer requirements. Paragon’s strong research and development program is both internally and externally funded, and it is focused on the development of innovative, cost-effective, and timely solutions for our customers.
