A message from your friends @MMA during this challenging time

At this time of global uncertainty due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we want to reassure you of our steadfast commitment to you: our customers, families, programs, and communities. Core to MMA’s values is a commitment to people, and it’s something we take to heart in both good times and bad.

We will remain focused on solutions and do our best to mitigate negative disruptions. We acknowledge that the impact of the outbreak is unpredictable and swiftly changing, but our team is actively managing supply chains, production and delivery timelines, and will remain in communication with you as we always have.

We wish you all health and safety, and a speedy end to this global crisis!

 

Meet us @SmallSat 2019 Conference!

We’re headed to Utah for SmallSat 2019! We’re packing up our hardware, and gearing up for a great conference. We are excited to be exhibiting again this year from August 5-8. You can find us in the Taggart Student Center (TSC) Booth 61.

If you are also headed to North Logan, Utah, we would love to meet with you! Please sign up here to talk about how we can help with your mission.

Come see what’s #HugeInSpace @MMA!

 

And, join us for a Happy Hour before the big parties Wendesday night, August 7 @6 pm. We want to meet you if you are looking for your next challenge! View some of our open roles.

 

FalconSAT-7 Finally Earns its Wings!

FalconSat-7 is a technology demonstration mission to test a solar space telescope incorporating a membrane photon sieve deployed from a 3U CubeSat to image the sun. It took flight on early Tuesday morning, June 25, on a SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket, along with over 2 dozen other small satellites.

FalconSAT-7 was a engineering collaboration between the United States Air Force Academy (USAFA), the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) and MMA. USAFA designed the photon sieve and spacecraft, while MMA designed, built and integrated the deployment mechanism which controls the accuracy of the photon sieve’s position and surface.

New missions, based on this technology, will make it possible to significantly reduce cost, with apertures (and hence resolutions) previously thought unobtainable. Due to its high packing ratios, this mission will prove that it’s possible to construct extremely compact satellites that are simple to manufacture and launch in large numbers with short lead times.

Another MMA HaWK Takes Flight!

Another MMA HaWK Solar Array launched at 2 am Eastern on May 5th from New Zealand on a Rocket Lab Electron rocket. The Space Plug and Play Architecture Research CubeSat-1 (SPARC-1), a six-unit cubesat sponsored by the Air Force Research Laboratory in cooperation with the Swedish military, was one of three satellites hitching a ride yesterday. MMA’s HaWKs will provide critical space power to the SPARC-1 mission which is a technology demonstration aiming to test modular spacecraft avionics.

Meet us at #35Space in Colorado Springs!

We’re here! Come visit us at the 35th National Space Symposium at the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs this week, April 8 – 11. We are in Booth 1231 and have plenty of hardware we are excited to share with you.

If you are here too, we would love to meet with you and talk about how we can help with your mission. Please sign up here for a time slot that works for you, and we look forward to catching up with you in Colorado Springs.

Come see what’s #HugeInSpace!

The Countdown to the 35th National Space Symposium has begun!

Are you headed to Colorado Springs for the 35th National Space Symposium at the Broadmoor hotel? We are gearing up for the show, and are delighted to be exhibiting again this year. Come by and see us in Booth 1231.

While you’re there, we would love to meet with you, show you some of our new technology and talk about how we can help with your mission. Please sign up here for a time slot that works for you, and we look forward to catching up with you at #35Space!

MarCO Mission’s twin CubeSats rule the headlines!

MarCO’s tiny, twin CubeSats have captured the attention of the entire world!

Their successful voyage to Mars — and the demonstration that smaller, less exquisite assets like these backpack-sized CubeSats can provide powerful support to missions, such as the data/communications relay proven with MarCOs A and B when the InSight Lander arrived at Mars on Monday, November 26, 2018 — is a giant leap forward for CubeSat technology, and a source of pride and excitement for the entire SmallSat community!

MMA is thrilled to have been involved in this milestone technology demonstration by providing space power to the MarCO CubeSats with our first, dual-axis deployment HaWK solar arrays. From all reports, our HaWKs surpassed power estimates on their interplanetary mission to the red planet, and now, BEYOND!
