THE SMALLSAT REVOLUTION

Meet the Aerospace CubeSat Fleet

Since 1999, The Aerospace Corporation has been a pioneer in the design, construction and flight of ultrasmall satellites. Learn more about the timeline of our past and future satellites.

Aerospace continues to research and develop ever-higher-performing technologies for smallsats.
The Slingshot 1 CubeSat will carry 19 Aerospace-developed payloads on launch in early July. Follow us on twitter @theaerospacecorporation for launch updates.
