Case Study

Primary Flight Control for Commercial Space Vehicle


Component Description

Flight-ready space hardware used in seven locations on the vehicle

What WE DID:

  • Lead, partner, collaborate, integrate, or co-develop programs
  • Focus on design, engineering, assembly and testing as well as moderate- and low-volume production
  • Support the entire product life cycle, from solution design through aftermarket support

The Environments:

  • Air
  • Space

The challenge requirements:

  • Extremely high speed and altitude during a long-distance flight regime
  • 150 VDC EMA with high frequency response
  • Required thousands of pounds of output force while operating at high speed
  • Capable of operating in extreme environmental conditions

Our approach:

  • Monte-Carlo-style analysis for worst-case duty cycle profiles
  • Matured the requirements and finalized EMA performance details
  • Clean-sheet design, prototyping and production

The Solution:

  • A fully qualified, flight-ready space hardware for the future space launch vehicle
  • Used in seven locations to support mission objectives


We are inventive, flexible, creative, and adaptive
