AIRBUS DS HOUSTON
Airbus DS Houston is an aerospace integration company in Houston, Texas that has a passion for development and implementation of space-ready products. As one of the few ISS implementation partners, Airbus DS Houston is currently working on the ArgUS platform (shown below) as a Bartolomeo extension. This innovation will allow for more companies to get involved in space-based research and begin to develop products for commercial space travel more rapidly. This type of research is useful for Physical Sciences Research, Life Sciences Research, Technology Development, Remote Sensing and Educational Development. These fields can include research involving pharmaceuticals, bone density, fabric development, the viewing of Earth's surface, atmospheric detection and much more. The position of the ArgUS platform provides the best view of Earth from the ISS and allows for researchers to run external experiments as well as experiments focused on Earth surface monitoring.
