Avaliant space systems experience ranges from the detailed design of communication subsystems to the architecting and modeling of entire systems involving space, ground network and control segments.
Our team members have been key participants in proposals and programs that span classified US programs; DoD systems (TSAT and WIN-T); the FAA’s Global Communication Navigation, Surveillance System (GCNSS) program; multiple NASA programs (Operationally Responsive Space (ORS) Modular Space Vehicle (MSV), Solar Electric Power (SEP) Space Tug, Mars Sample Return, and others); commercial COMSATs and the constellation-based networks of Iridium, ICO and Teledesic.
