Exail.comMetakosmos (Vyom Tech Pty Ltd) is an Australian spacesuit technology startup working on the next generation integrated commercial spacesuit platform, the Kosmosuit. Metakosmos is one of 12 Australian companies to have been awarded grants through the Moon to Mars Supply Chain Capability program in intake 10 announced on 1 March, 2024.

The cutting edge 12 Aussie space projects, which align with NASA’s Artemis mission, will share in more than $9 million in funding to help drive innovation and support emerging Australian science. The Moon to Mars grants will assist these Australian companies to enter global space supply chains.

Kiriti Rambhatla CEO, Metakosmos, expressed his excitement: “We are grateful for the opportunity to receive this grant. Metakosmos would like to thank the Australian Government, the Minister for Industry & Science Hon Ed Husic & the Australian Space Agency. This is a great investment into the future of the Australian space supply chain and ecosystem. I believe that this recognition demonstrates that Metakosmos is a promising contributor to the Australian space supply chain. We look forward to successfully delivering the project with our partners and taking this project to international markets.”

The $250,000 grant will assist Metakosmos to improve the technology readiness level of Kosmosuit, which has dual-use terrestrial applications. The project aims to establish connectivity between the subsystems and the proprietary bioastronautics interface, which will be deployed at various centres. The project also builds an internal automated capability that further enhances the space suit production capacity.
