how we can help you

Design

Design

Approximately 70 percent of the cost of a design is spent in the first 30 percent of the design cycle. The choices you make and ideas you generate will constrain what you can do later.

Electric airplanes to eVTOL

Today’s aerospace industry is going through incredible innovation and development of new technologies and transportation concepts. It is an exciting time to be part of this adventure.  As new companies emerge and “old” companies reinvent themselves, they may need some help in getting their ideas off the ground. This is where we might be able to help you, as we are helping others with their projects. So whether you have a flying car, an air taxi, or a UAV/Drone, please contact us to see how we might be able to help.

Commercial launch and Supersonic travel

It’s amazing how the aerospace landscape is changing. Not just in numbers of companies, but also in the range, speed and missions being addressed. New companies are creating better and more cost effective ways to launch satellites and reach to the stars, while others are figuring out how to get you from point A to Point B at the highest speed and the greatest efficiency. We are helping many of them explore this new space. Please reach out to us to see how we might be able to help launch your concept.
