Archinaut

Technology Overview

For Space, In Space

The largest man-made structure in space today took billions of dollars and over a decade of time to construct. Archinaut enables the next generation of large-scale, off-world manufacturing.

Archinaut technologies unlock our ability to manufacture and assemble large structures on orbit. Think large imaging arrays, kilometer-scale communications tools, and large space stations.

Applications

  • Enabling remote, in-space construction of communications antennae, large-scale space telescopes and other complex structures
  • Enabling small satellites to deploy large surface area power systems and reflectors that currently are reserved for larger satellites
  • Eliminating spacecraft volume limits imposed by rockets
  • Avoiding the inherent risk of spacewalks by performing some tasks currently completed by astronauts.
