NSC has the experience and expertise to design and fabricate a variety of soft goods; from parachutes, balloons, uprighting flotation systems, and other inflatable articles. We develop space grade products that will stand up to the rigors of your specific mission. We have the ability for rapid prototyping for demanding program schedules. NSC operates a wide range of custom in-house sealers, sewing machines, and test equipment to validate designs and identify weak points before they go into production.
