Manufacturing News

Australian space suit company Metakosmos has announced an agreement with Saudi Arabian engineering services company Al-Sanai, which the Sydney-based startup says is “a strategic move” to reach new markets.

In a statement on Tuesday (Sydney time), Metakosmos CEO Kiriti Rambhatla said of the collaboration: “As a part of the Metakosmos global customer expansion plan, after the USA & India, we are excited to embark on this journey with Al-Sanai, as we expand our presence into Saudi Arabia and the wider Middle East space market.”

Few details were given about the partnership, though Metakosmos said its partner’s decades of local knowledge and its resources would assist “to navigate regulatory landscapes, cultural nuances, and market dynamics effectively.”

Al-Sanai CEO Abdul Aziz Alothman said, “This collaboration aligns perfectly with our vision of delivering cutting-edge real-time technologies to customers worldwide.”

Al-Sanai (Industrial Prosperity) is described as a specialist in extreme environment monitoring platforms and applications, offering automation and engineering services expertise for various engineering projects.

Metakosmos was awarded a Moon to Mars Supply Chain Capability program grant worth $250,000 earlier this month.

The grant would help the company improve the technology readiness level of its Kosmosuit, “which has dual-use terrestrial applications”. 

The funded project “aims to establish connectivity between the subsystems and the proprietary bioastronautics interface, which will be deployed at various centres” according to Metakosmos.
