Imagine how precise each pattern and template has to be if you are creating rockets and space suites for astronauts. A product designed to fly to space, leave earth and explore different worlds, has no choice but to be very well made.
N-hega Technology shares the same rigorous standards for precision and quality as NASA, and is proud to have been chosen and trusted by one of the most important space agencies (if not the most important) in the world. After comparing and evaluating different options, NASA selected N-hega Technology to work with their AutoCAD and cutter systems.
The NScan is currently installed at NASA Johnson Space Center located in Texas. The department creates softgoods that are digitized by the NScan and sent to a cutter and CAD system. The JSC center is where human spaceflight training, research, and flight control are conducted. The center is also home to the Mission Control Center where NASA monitors all human spaceflight for the United States.
NASA JSC is not the only station that is using N-hega Technology. We are proud to be also working with NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California with the NShot-Pro CAD digitizer system. The laboratory's primary function is the construction and operation of planetary robotic spacecraft, though it also conducts Earth-orbit and astronomy missions. Among the laboratory's major active projects are the Mars Science Laboratory mission, the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, and the Juno spacecraft orbiting Jupiter.
The NScan and NShot are used worldwide and now, we can proudly say that it has also reached space!
