Millennium Space Systems starts making Altair spacecraft

Millennium Space Systems said it has announced the first commercial Altairâ„¢ spacecraft is now in production.

Altair I further validates DARPA´s original SeeMe vision of game-changing affordability and responsiveness, coupled with high performance mission capability — Altairâ„¢ leverages Millennium´s SeeMe design, taking the next steps to make it a reality.

Altairâ„¢ I´s flexible 27U form factor operationalizes the cubesat concept by enabling increased mission capability while leveraging many of the beneficial cost and schedule savings inherent in the existing cubesat form factors. Altairâ„¢ I continues Millennium´s commitment to further vertically integrating the company with the flight demonstration of several internally developed subsystem components.

Millennium Space Systems is a privately held, employee-owned company founded in November 2001, providing alternative, relevant and affordable solutions to today´s aerospace challenges. The company designs flight systems and develops mission and system solutions for the Intelligence Community, Department of Defense, National Aeronautics & Space Administrations, and commercial customers.
