"Each minute working in outer space is unique in terms of risks and the importance of works being performed," said Maxim Kuzyuk, CEO of Technodinamika. "Our space suit is developed to make the work of Russian experts on the ISS even more efficient. It allows a person to feel maximum comfort and safety even in such an aggressive environment like outer space. This is a unique tool, which none of our foreign colleagues have yet."
Engineers managed to increase the service life of the space suits from 4 to 5 years and the number of spacewalks from 15 to 20 by replacing the rubber shell with polyurethane one. In addition, cosmonauts will not only be able to put on their space suits themselves, but also make all their adjustments and minor repairs.
In the event of decompression caused by Orlan-MKS shell damage, the system can maintain the necessary pressure inside a space suit for 30–50 minutes. This is sufficient to return to the station.
