Space IndustryIt’s an exciting time for space programs around the world, as players take part beyond the U.S., Russia, and the European Space Agency (ESA). India, China and Iran are all in on the action, reaching for the moon, Mars, and beyond. Very different from the days when the US/USSR “space race” was running at full speed.

Space Industry Transformation

Technological Advancements Transform Space into a Broader Information Enterprise

The space industry is engaged in a remarkable technological transformation from primarily government-driven stand-alone projects to a private industry-driven supply chain collaborating to create exciting new services for businesses and consumers. The key technology trends that are driving the new space industry are recyclable and smaller launch vehicles that are reducing the cost of putting satellites into orbit. Another key trend is smaller satellites, weighing from less than one to a few hundred pounds, that lower the barrier to entry for new space applications.

NASA Partner Stone Aerospace Saves $20,000 and 12 Weeks Thanks to E3.series

Stone Aerospace, a partner in NASA’s Europa Clipper mission concept, was under a tight deadline when NASA tasked the Texas-based company with designing a one-of-a-kind underwater autonomous vehicle (AUV). The AUV was built to perform deep under Antarctic ice – the most Jupiter-like condition on Earth – and serve as a prototype for a future mission to Europa.
