  • TUCSON, AZ (April 30, 2020)– Paragon Space Development Corporation® (Paragon) is proud to announce it is part of the winning Dynetics team, a wholly owned subsidiary of Leidos, which was awarded as one of the prime contractors for NASA’s Artemis Human Landing System (HLS).

    As a key partner on the Dynetics team, Paragon will be leveraging its multi-decade expertise and experience in life support and thermal control by designing and providing the Environmental Control and Life Support System (ECLSS) for the program. The Dynetics team was specifically assembled to be agile, fast and responsive in order to minimize schedule, reduce schedule risk, and swiftly address any challenges or hurdles that may emerge.

    “We are beyond honored and excited to not only have been part of the team awarded with this important work for NASA, but are greatly looking forward to supporting and working with this outstanding group of technology developers, scientists, engineers and integrators. This is the spirit of America at work – coming together with complimentary capabilities to harmonize and get a critical job done.” said Grant Anderson, President and CEO for Paragon.

    The Dynetics design for the HLS enables near-term reusability and sustainability and is made affordable by leveraging flight-proven technologies for the habitat, power, thermal, and other subsystems. Paragon’s contributions to the Dynetics design for the HLS are built upon a strong legacy of work with NASA, having supported the development of every human-rated vehicle since 1999.

    “Dynetics is excited to lead this expert team of subcontractors that will return Americans to the lunar surface,” said Kim Doering, Vice President of Space Systems at Dynetics. “This team has a proven history of technical excellence, and their contributions will greatly benefit the future of space exploration.”

    Paragon has been a trusted leader in supporting mission critical operations for space, military, and commercial customers around the world for over 26 years.

  • TUCSON, AZ (November 5, 2019 – ) – Paragon Space Development Corporation (Paragon) is proud to announce a new award as part of NASA’s Tipping Point Program. This contract award, worth $2 million, specifically concerns the Shape Memory Alloys for Regulating Thermal control systems in Space (SMARTS) radiator. SMARTS promises the high thermal turndown and low mass that is needed to enable operations in the extreme range of environments that NASA and commercial space entities plan to explore.

    Paragon will be leading an experienced team supported by Boeing, Texas A&M, NASA’s Glenn Research Center, and NASA Johnson Space Center to develop a thermal control system for lunar missions that maintains acceptable operating temperatures throughout the Moon’s day and night cycle. The design of this system could be adapted for crewed missions to Mars.

    “We are pleased to have been selected once again by NASA to be part of this exciting, important and forward-leaning endeavor, and we greatly look forward to working with the NASA Centers and partners in the private sector on this important work. America’s future is in space, and the Tipping Point program will be critical to realizing humanity’s spacefaring future.” said Grant Anderson, Paragon’s President and CEO.

    NASA recently selected 14 American companies as partners whose technologies will help enable the agency’s Moon to Mars exploration approach. The selections are based on NASA’s fourth competitive Tipping Point solicitation which will help bring the technologies to market and ready them for use by NASA. This contract represents the second consecutive Tipping Point award for Paragon over the last two years.

    “These high level solutions being developed by our innovators in Arizona increase safety and contribute to mission accomplishments. The expansion of this new technology has been invaluable,” said Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick, Representative for Arizona’s 2nd Congressional District

    For more than a quarter century, Paragon has been a trusted leader in providing extreme environment life support and thermal control solutions – including spacecraft life support systems, thermal control radiators, and next generation cooling systems – to support mission critical operations for space, military, and commercial customers around the world.
