The original creators of the engine that kickstarted Humanity’s expansion into space, Roberts Space Industries builds a wide range of spaceships that serve all needs, from basic industrial vessels to deep exploration ships made to reach the outer edges of the galaxy. They have not only played an important role in expanding Humanity’s reach but also in protecting it.

Some of the largest capital ships in the UEE Naval Fleet are made by RSI. While their vehicles traditionally do a solid job with whatever their role is, they are not known for standing out in any particular category. RSI is who you turn to when you want a solid, dependable ship back by generations of engineering know-how, but when you want something that excels, many consumers will turn to one of the other more specialized ship manufacturers. In addition to vehicles, the company also manufactures armor, exploration suits, and other gear.

RSI Scorpius Antares


Our goal was to design a chair that combines the highest quality, ergonomic design and a comfortable seating experience, especially for long flight missions. At the same time, it should harmonize perfectly with different flight control setups.

In addition, the chair has a central cutout in the seat, which allows a center joystick to be mounted in an optimal position.


The most important part of the design is the shape of the backrest:

The wider lower part provides the pilot with stability, while the narrower upper part allows unrestricted freedom of movement in the shoulder and elbow area.

This means the seat offers maximum freedom of movement for smooth operation of the joystick and throttle without any restrictions.


  • Height adjustable
  • Synchronous mechanism – the seat and backrest move synchronously with each other
  • You can fix the backrest in 5 positions
  • The backrest’s height is adjustable in 6 positions
  • Seat depth adjustment
  • Seat tilt adjustment
  • Padded 4-D armrests
  • Glass fiber reinforced base
  • Seat cut-out for center joysticks
  • Interchangeable Velcro patch on the back

Optional for pedal users:

  • Lockable easy-running casters for all floors
  • Rotation Brake


All logos are embroidered in great detail and reflect the ambient light in an elegant way.

The seat cover is made out of a new breathable and water-vapor-permeable synthetic leather from Continental in our home town Hannover. The hybrid material made of vinyl and polyurethane uses the best properties of both and provides surface softness and durability.
