This won’t do for a mission to Mars. Collins Aerospace is working to fix that problem by developing a compactor that can take a heap of trash the size of a beer keg and squash it into something the size of a pizza.
Discovering the uncharted
From the computer that guided Apollo 11 to the moon, to the spacesuits of the first U.S. astronauts – Raytheon Technologies has shaped the history of space technology. These achievements continue to define generations of space exploration.
Today, the technologies we build for space advance life here on Earth and beyond. Our satellites and systems for real-time space-based imaging inform and accelerate decisions and enable the next great scientific discovery in outer space. And our life support systems help take people there safely.
Digital engineering for space
Digital engineering was at the center of WorldView Legion, a system of Earth-observing satellites that Raytheon Intelligence & Space is creating for Maxar Technologies.
The next giant leap
It will take new technologies to face those hazards. Futuristic spacesuits, life systems for space capsules, and advanced, earthbound training for astronauts are being developed by Raytheon Technologies.
