Space Enabled Products
Optical Crystal / Ceramic Turbines / Optical Fiber

Products manufactured in microgravity have enhanced properties offering unique benefits that cannot be replicated on Earth.

Human Spaceflight Operations
On-Demand Manufacturing / ISRU / Mission Support

In-space manufacturing reduces mission costs, decreases delivery time, and allows for rapid response to mission parameters as they evolve.

Regenerative Medicine
3D bioprinting / Cell Therapy / Bone Densitometry

Print biomaterial that can be used for organ & tissue development not possible on Earth.

Plants In Space
Crop Production / Gene Expression / Long-Duration Spaceflight

Reproduce the gravity of Earth, the moon, Mars, and beyond to observe its effects on living cells and tissue.
When quality is critical.

Redwire’s In-Space Production facilities onboard the International Space Station are operational and ready to produce advanced materials and high-value goods in space for customers on Earth.
