At Orion Space Solutions we recognize that every mission is unique. We work side-by-side with our customers to deliver test and calibration options tailored to their specific mission needs to ensure successful and consistent results. 

A customer-first delivery model

From vibration and thermal vacuum testing, to test analysis, calibration and certification, the Orion customer-first approach aims for total satisfaction, transparency and rapid delivery across the entire assembly, integration and test process.

Based in Louisville, Colorado, Orion Space Solutions' 17,500-square-foot lab houses an electronics laboratory, laser lab and SmallSat lab, as well as office space and world-class computing facilities.

Our assembly, integration and test (AI&T) labs

Our AI&T labs include a SmallSat-assembly facility, two Class 10,000 clean rooms, environmental test chambers, reflow stations, electrostatic discharge safe electronics assembly areas, secure storage and rotation bench. The lab environment contains cutting-edge radio frequency signal generation, processing, and testing equipment in support of various SmallSat missions. 

Orion recently acquired an additional 25,000 square feet of lab space that hosts a suite of new manufacturing capabilities, allowing us to produce high-quality products at scale. Completion is expected in 2024.
