Our Standard Platform Portfolio - Key System Performance

Our platforms combine space qualified ‘off-the-shelf’ subsystems with our end-to-end platforms heritage providing industry-leading adaptability, capability, and reliability!

Matrix RevisedUsing highly integrated designs and systems we can offer a high level of reliability and system knowledge across many missions. Our design for excellence approach coupled with our cutting-edge manufacturing model enables high volume platform delivery for our customers with quick turnaround times.

With highly competitive process our next generation of spacecraft make constellations of satellites more achievable and are perfect for missions requiring real-time global coverage.

We recognize that every customers’ mission is different, that’s why our standard platforms ranging from 1U right up to 12U can be tailored to your mission-specific requirements, contact us for further details.
