AB Emblem have just released a new older 2018 version of the Orion Crew Survival System patch. This OCSS "Engineering" patch is worn on the orange spaceflight training suits during the crew survival training, and also by the ground crews, engineers and technicians.

The previous 2019 4-inch round OCSS version of this patch that has a bull in an orange space/pressure suit with the Orion command module orbiting around the bull (a very rare patch), it has the following details on the label;

  • 298990 Made In USA 10/19 20 (on an old style white label)

This newer 4-inch round "Crew Survival Engineering" (as on the patch) patch has the following early 2018 SKU patch design number, 287082. The date code used on this patch is not known at this time, but could also probably be a 2018 date code?

These OCSS patches are the official embroidered patches for internal NASA use to showcase the new flight suits used during the launch, flight and re-entry that the astronauts will be wearing for the Artemis missions to the Moon and back. Then onto Mars in the coming decade.

All times are CT (US)
