Space Perspective & Supreme Integrated Technology, Inc. Join Forces

Supreme Integrated Technology, Inc. (SIT), has joined forces with Space Perspective, the leading luxury space travel company in completing a new project. Starting in late 2024, Space Perspective Explorers will safely ascend to the edge of space in a climate-controlled, pressurized capsule, propelled by a SpaceBalloon rather than rockets, to experience the phenomenal beauty of Earth from space. The two companies are working together for retrieval operations of the capsule and its passengers at the conclusion of their space journey.

A large A-frame is needed to retrieve both the space capsule and the fast boat meeting the capsule from its specific landing location. Space Perspective was looking to retrofit an existing offshore service vessel (OSV) to accommodate this mission and needed to design a custom A-frame to accomplish the task. SIT was willing to assist with the design, starting from a “rough sketch idea” while working with Space Perspective to determine the specifications to make this system safer, including having it meet the recommended ship classification to ensure safety for space travelers.

“We looked at several vendors to support this critical need, and SIT was the clear choice thanks to their well-established reputation and deep engineering bench,” said Taber MacCallum, Founder and Co-CEO of Space Perspective.

The entire design required creativity from the SIT engineering team in collaboration with the Space Perspective engineers to ensure passenger safety and deliver a smooth, comfortable transport from capsule to the OSV. SIT’s scope of supply included:

  • A-frame structure
  • Luffing cylinders
  • Retrieval winch
  • Two tugger winches
  • Hydraulic power unit

SIT has built a valuable working relationship with Space Perspective, with respect for their mission to share the transformative power of space travel with as many people as possible. SIT earned this trust through quick responsiveness to a difficult application, as SIT is a small, 100% employee-ownership company with nimbleness to deliver a turnkey solution.

SIT’s engineering expertise transforms ideas into success for hydraulic or electric powered moveable structures. Using innovative methodologies, SIT gives customers a single-source solution for marine, civil, Jacking System, industrial, aerospace & military applications. SIT is part of EOHI, a 100% employee owned company based in Houston, Texas and also the parent of Hydraquip, Inc., GCC, and Elite Controls, Inc.

Gas Chromatograph Portable Enclosure Skid

Have you seen our latest project highlight featuring a gas chromatograph portable enclosure skid? SIT was approached by a valued client with a unique application involving the dual fuel system on their 2500HP Tier 4 diesel engines. In this system, the diesel fuel can be substituted with natural gas coming directly from a variety of onsite sources. This practice significantly reduces operating expenses by lowering the overall fuel costs via the ability to replace between 65% to 85% of the diesel with natural gas.

This was a challenging project because we had to generate a standalone gas analyzation package that could sample the natural gas source from up to 100 ft away, feed that sample through a compact gas chromatograph (GC) and then communicate the results wirelessly to a centralized control network.

Specifications provided by SIT included:

  • Rosemount™ 370XA Gas Chromatograph
  • Custom process gas sampling reel assembly with associated carrier, actuation, and calibration gas bottles
  • Nitrogen purged electrical enclosure
  • Custom power supply system integrating 120VAC input power and solar charged backup batteries

SIT designed and developed a complete package for this solution, alongside our client partner, in only six (6) weeks’ time, with the unit fully operational and in the field after only nine (9) weeks. The customer was extremely pleased with SIT’s ability to comprehensively develop such a unique package tailored to their specific application, in such a short window. View the project highlight to get all of the details. Contact SIT for your industrial and oil & gas project needs.
