Orbital Outfitters - Jeff Feige

Orbital Outfitters - Jeff Feige
Jeff asked that some of the images he'll share today not be posted.

Orbital Outfitters was started to meet the commercial space market's needs.  They were founded in 2006.  Their primary manufacturing facility is located in North Hollywood.  They have worked with several companies.

Why wear a suite?  Suits provided emergency protection against lack of oxygen, lack of atmospheric pressure, noxious gases and thermal environments.  There is not a single suit solution.  Suits are necessary.

They struggled with designing suits for a thousand different people.  People come in a large set of various sizes and shapes.  They decided to go with modulization.  They can put together pieces to build a comfortable suit for each person.
