Mochii

Back to Products

Mochii is the first spectroscopic scanning electron microscope in space.

The Mochii ISS National Laboratory Facility provides elemental analysis and nano-imaging in low Earth orbit (LEO), supporting microgravity science and engineering for the benefit of humankind.

Mochii on ISS is a powerful and unique commercial platform for microgravity research in LEO, serving NASA and the ISS International Partners, academic, and commercial customers. The Internet of Things (IoT)-based data/communication model enables ground access to powerful capabilities to the ISS, NASA, and terrestrial customers with minimal impact to crew time during first year operations.

Mochii travels to the ISS aboard the Cygnus spacecraft, following successful NASA verifications and demonstration during NASA's NEEMO 23 mission in Aquarius, the world's only undersea research station. Following berthing and initial tests, Mochii on ISS will be available for use by the international community. The rigor of flight verification and portable and remote mission experience enhances Mochii field ruggedness, benefiting terrestrial academic and industrial Mochii customers.
