Bio

Ted Southern is the President and co-founder of Final Frontier Design (FFD), a space suit design and manufacturing company based in Brooklyn, New York.  FFD was formed from a successful partnership in NASA’s 2009 Astronaut Glove Competition, together with his co-founder, Nikolay Moiseev.  Mr. Southern has served as Principal Investigator for 4 NASA SBIRs for FFD between 2011-2015 for space suit component development, including pressurized gloves, arm mobility joints, and radiation protection for EVA.  He has published his reports on pressurized gloves in the Journal of Aviation, Space, and Environmental Medicine (ASEM) and the International Conference on Environmental Systems (ICES).  Mr. Southern is also the Principal Investigator for a fixed price contract to develop next generation Mechanical Counter Pressure Gloves for NASA, and for a NASA sponsored microgravity flight campaign scheduled for 2016.  Currently FFD is in the process of flight certifying FFD’s IVA space suit assembly through both the FAA and NASA, building cutting edge space suit gloves, and developing spin off garments for life on Earth.   He has presented guest lectures on space suits and wearables to multiple universities, including Parsons New School, Pratt Institute, MIT, Harvard Design, Cornell, Florida Institute of Technology, and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.
