With decades of spaceflight heritage and hundreds of payloads flown to space, the Redwire team is contributing to investigations and technologies that are helping humanity understand our planet Earth, natural phenomenon, and more.
Here are four payloads, developed by Redwire, that are operating on the International Space Station (ISS) RIGHT NOW:
- Advanced Plant Habitat (APH)
NASA’s Advanced Plant Habitat is managed by Redwire for plant science operations on space station.
Using APH, researchers can study how plants adapt to spaceflight, like growth and genetic changes, for applications on Earth and deep space missions.
- International Space Station Roll-Out Solar Arrays (IROSA)
Our innovative roll-out solar array technology has provided a critical power boost to the space station with IROSA, extending the life of the orbiting laboratory by providing more power for station science and operations.
- Solidification Using a Baffle in Sealed Ampoules (SUBSA)
The NASA owned SUBSA furnace, managed by Redwire, allows researchers to investigate how materials melt and solidify in microgravity.
This could provide key improvements in electrical and optical conductors for electronics on Earth and for deep space.
- Pore Formation and Mobility Investigation Facility (PFMI)
Also managed by Redwire, PFMI furnace allows scientists to study how bubbles form and move during phase change (from liquid to solid) inside molten material.
This research will help improve future manufacturing processes for products in space and on Earth.
