SimilAire is a company with the goal to design, patent, and license to manufacture cryogenic based breathing devices, equipment, and systems through multiple distribution channels both foreign and domestic. The company has developed patented technology for use in cryogenic breathing apparatuses.

BCS had previously entered into an agreement with NASA’s Kennedy Space Center. This joint project demonstrated:

  1. A method to store Liquid Air.
  2. A device that will allow the operation of a cryogenic vessel in any orientation with respect to gravity.

Application patents have been issued to BCS regarding both aspects of the SAA with BCS retaining all
intellectual property rights.

After successful demonstration of the technology, BCS entered into a new agreement between NASA, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH),
and the Office of Mine Safety and Health Research (OMSHR). The first of a series of contracts was awarded by NASA, which provided funding to provide the expertise to assist in the design,
fabrication, and testing of cryogenic self-contained breathing apparatuses. In support of these SCBAs
for use in underground mining, BCS was tasked as well with designing Liquid Air zero-loss storage and
supply and fill systems.
