Satellite Propulsion & Program Management
OP Space has a combined 34 years of professional experience designing, building, and testing both large & small satellites
Six years combined experience with the SkySat high resolution Earth observation constellation; first to launch and operate ECAPS' LMP-103S green monopropellant. First to integrate, launch, and operate Enpulsion's indium FEEP electric propulsion system into a 3U cubesat. Agile aerospace mindset and philosophy.
Deep background in extremely high reliability satellite design, integration, and test. 25 years combined experience ranging from spacecraft configuration design, integration and test, to propulsive orbit raising mission operations
We offer aerospace program management & propulsion system engineering support.
Some examples are:
Size & specify a chemical and/or electric propulsion system to achieve mission requirements for VLEO, LEO and GEO applications. Perform supplier oversight & management. Provide technical due diligence.
Lead execution of program goals by providing a decision-making framework around suppliers, specific subsystems, or entire satellites. Manage resources to achieve program schedule and deliverables.
Support launch campaign propellant loading operations. Develop high fidelity propellant tracking process to accurately predict end-of-life. Simulate burn performance before maneuver and anchor to as-executed data.
Provide experienced results proven processes to successfully integrate components, subsystems and satellites. Oversee technical test campaign and integration schedule. Create automated test reports.
