Serionix, a Serra Capital I and III company, announced on March 14 that it has officially been awarded a NASA Phase II grant. Serionix, the startup fundamentally changing the way we look at air, received a $750,000 contract from NASA to fund continued development of filters to remove toxic gases from next-generation spacesuit life support systems. The same technology is on its way into consumer products expected to launch within the year.
NASA has awarded funding to evaluate ColorfilTM technology for incorporation into the next generation of spacesuit and Personal Life Support System (PLSS), which is used during spacewalks to keep astronauts safe, healthy, and comfortable. Jim Langer, President of Serionix enthused, “We are excited for the opportunity to work with NASA to send our Colorfil technology into space!”
