HOUSTON – () –Sophic Synergistics, LLC – a Houston-based human-centered design consulting firm led by founder and CEO Cynthia Rando, CHFP – announced today that they have partnered with Axiom Space which has been awarded one of the first two contracts for commercial space missions by NASA to provide the next generation of Exploration Extravehicular Activity Services (xEVAS). This contract award means NASA’s continued efforts to enable its vision of a thriving commercial space economy, by awarding the first contract for commercial spacecraft services. Under this “EVA as a Service” contract, the winners will provide an EVA system (space suit, associated hardware and services) for the International Space Station (ISS), Artemis and advanced program missions. The contract will have an order period of 10 years from the date of entry into force of the contract with a potential total value of $ 3.5 billion over the life of the program. Axiom Space is a commercial space technology company with a vision to lead the aerospace industry into the commercialization era by building the world’s first commercial space station. Axiom Space is led by Michael Suffredini, President and CEO.

The partnership Sophic Synergistics – Axiom Space is significant as spacesuits are a critical component to enable exploration in Low Earth Orbit (LEO) and beyond and will require a comprehensive focus on the end user to ensure a successful and secure design. Through this unique partnership with Sophic Synergistics, Axiom Space will develop commercial spacesuits that provide the best man-centered design methods for use in a new commercial development era, resulting in crews that are crew-centered, innovative, functional and most importantly, safe for the next generation of professionals. and private astronauts.

“Sophic has worked diligently in the commercial space sector over the years to implement a model of human-centered design that enables flexibility and agility while maintaining integrity and security in practice. We are very pleased to continue to push the boundaries of space exploration and technological development. together with our partner Axiom Space and create a culture of trust in commercial opportunities for the US government. ” – Cynthia Rando, CHFP, founder and CEO of Sophic Synergistics

“We are proud to partner with Sophic to build an expert team to develop the next-generation space suit for astronauts that will equip a new era of space exploration in low orbit, at the International Space Station and on the moon with the lunar mission Artemis. The contract with xEVAS space suits opens up a new exciting aspiration in human spaceflight that expands opportunities for the commercial space industry to grow and achieve greater achievements for more of humanity. ” – Mark Greeley, Axiom xEVAS Program Manager

This new NASA contract enables Axiom Space to work with its partners to build next-generation space suits for astronauts that serve Axiom’s growing list of commercial customers, private astronauts and future commercial space station targets while meeting NASA’s ISS and Artemis lunar exploration needs. .

Sophic Synergistics has quickly become a sought-after reliable partner for commercial companies in many industries including aviation. With current contracts supporting several aspects of aerospace architecture (such as the Human Landing System (HLS) and the development of the world’s first commercial space station), the xEVAS contract allows Sophic Synergistics to expand the value of human-centered commercial space design and develop another channel for commercial aviation success. The company has shown its enormous value by listening, solving problems and integrating people-centered approaches into the core aspects of the strategic approach to business, including the design and development of products and services. Sophic Synergistics puts its full focus on the customer they serve and the end users they represent in the design life cycle, resulting in achievable solutions that enhance the human experience on and off the planet with safety as its core focus.
