Extreme Environmental Suits
Paragon’s expertise in advanced life support technologies has translated into developing technically-advanced space suits to protect our customers in extreme environments whether in space, on earth, or subsea.
Paragon Dive System™
Paragon developed the Paragon Dive System™ for the US Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA). PDS is a surface-fed, fully encapsulated protection system that isolates divers from the hazards found in grossly contaminated (Category 1) water. Other applications include chemical warfare.
Constellation Space Suit
With a team led by Oceaneering Space Systems, Paragon worked to engineer a suit to meet NASA’s stringent requirements. Paragon led thermal modeling and analysis of integrated suit, human, and PLSS as well as designed and delivered thermal and PLSS components.
StratEx Space Suit
Paragon designed and built the first new spacesuit in 40 years. The suit included state-of-the-art systems technology. The Integrated oxygen tank provide an eight hour capacity and an extra hour of oxygen usable in the event of an emergency. A regenerable system removes carbon dioxide and humidity, while a suit water membrane evaporator (SWME) provides cooling.
