spacewalks in our space suits
Raytheon Technologies has shaped the history of space exploration, and that spirit of innovation continues to thrive. Our space technologies – used for missile warning, intelligence, weather information, earth observation, human space flight and beyond – are essential for global commerce, scientific discovery and global security.
We draw upon decades of investment in technology to protect our world. Here are just a few examples.
Collins Aerospace designed the first space suit that allowed astronauts to walk on the moon, as well as the suit NASA astronauts currently use when operating outside the International Space Station. And when astronauts return to the moon, they can use new Collins-built space suits that are more mobile, easier to maintain and made to fit almost anyone.
The Earth-observation instruments and next-generation software systems developed by Raytheon Intelligence & Space are providing critical information and managing enormous amounts of data gathered by the business' satellites and sensors in orbit. Those end-to-end space technologies are helping us predict weather patterns on Earth, secure military communications and explore Mars’ surface.
In our digital engineering hubs, research labs and advanced manufacturing facilities, our teams are pushing the limits of known science. Our researchers, engineers and innovators are developing the capabilities needed to solve the space industry’s most complex problems of today – and to anticipate the solutions of tomorrow.
At Raytheon Technologies, we're accelerating ideas to solve some of the world's biggest challenges by bringing together the brightest, most innovative minds across aviation, space and defense.
