Space Science Systems

Let us connect your next big idea with engineering reality in a small CubeSat package that fits comfortably inside your budget.

Innovative SmallSat

Sensors & Subsystems

ASTRA™ helps our customers utilize low cost access to space by providing innovative CubeSat sensors and subsystems, engineering robust CubeSat system-designs based on your measurement and scientific needs, and providing in-depth mission analysis to ensure mission success and scientific closure. 

In addition to our CubeSat systems, we specialize in miniaturization of sensor and other instrumentation as we continually strive to meet compatibility requirements for small platforms. ASTRA's work on recent CubeSat science missions demonstrates our ability to meet our customer's high demands and stringent requirements to provide the tools they need to achieve the goals of their missions.
