The CraigX Flight Test Platform (FTP), was designed, manufactured and assembled in-house at their facilities in Cape Canaveral, FL. It is designed to mount externally to the International Space Station (ISS) and promote electronics testing to raise Technology Readiness Levels (TRL) at a low cost and a reduced time frame. The interchangeable panel design minimizes hardware changes between missions while maximizing flexibility to accommodate customer requirements. Additive manufactured hardware is used internally to reduce manufacturing cost and schedule.
Craig provides turnkey services to manage and perform the work for integration and on-orbit operations of payloads using SSIKLOPS for both government and commercial customers. The SSIKLOPS platform robotically deploys satellites from the ISS and is designed to provide a method to transfer internally stowed satellites to the external environment.
Craig Technologies provides quality in-house Design Engineering services from up-front analysis to integration, assembly and test. Our ISO 9001:2015 / AS9100D certified multi-disciplinary engineering capabilities include the ability to perform initial design concepts and requirements definition or value-add engineering change recommendations to existing engineering. Craig’s model-based systems engineering approach includes 3D CAD & 2D engineering release to include design for life cycle cost & manufacturability and thorough product analysis.
Training and Courseware Development
Craig Technologies has extensive experience developing and redesigning training and knowledge resources, developing e-learning courseware, converting classroom events to e-learning, creating award-winning training videos, creating and maintaining Learning Management Systems (LMS), and developing and maintaining websites. Craig supports the full spectrum of training requirements from front-end analysis to final product. Our training programs include full motion simulators, SCORM conformant IMI delivered by various Learning Management Systems, Web-based training for mobile platforms, instructor-led training, Advanced Electronic Classrooms, Distributed Learning, PC-based simulations for technical and soft skills training, and simulator/part task trainer build.
Information Technology Support
Craig provides Information Technology system support to a diverse customer base in both secure (classified) and open environments. We meet the technological demands with a mastery of cyber security, security protocols, infrastructure expertise, and network support including architectural design, database administrators, mainframe-centric traditional Help Desk (levels 1 – 3), Network Monitoring, Systems Management, Restart/Recovery, and Scheduling functions allowing our customers to operate in a secure and agile environments.
Craig’s Cybersecurity Engineers and Analysts use an agency and mission-based approach that supports the architectural methodology in NIST Special Publication “Managing IT Security Risk” (SP 800-39). Our cyber-security teams meet current Risk Management Framework and DoD 8570 requirements via the CISSP, CompTIA, Sec+ and CE certification process and conduct Information Systems vulnerability assessments, risk mitigation, and Plan of Action and Milestone (POA&M) development and tracking. They perform compliance assessments within designated enclaves (Systems, subsystems and individual computing/electronic devices), validate compliance against the predetermined Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIG) and mitigate / correct deficiencies as discovered.
Software Design and Development
Craig offers full system lifecycle development of custom software, mobile applications and business intelligence dashboards. Our agile software development processes support new design and legacy code running on open source and proprietary operating systems in classified and open environments. Craig’s expertise includes web portals, databases, charting, mobile / tablet and next generation technology systems.
Fiber Optic Fabrication
Craig Technologies Aerospace Solutions (CTAS) fabricates the highest quality fiber optic harnesses and cable assemblies for a wide variety of applications built to spec. We are certified to NASA STD 8739.5 and have a level B trainer on-site. Our technicians are skilled in connector termination and polishing and fusion splicing of both single and multi-mode fiber wire. Our fiber optic assemblies are 100% inspected to ensure fault free delivery of product using visual fault finding and digital light meters with available test result printouts provided to customer.
Craig provides for safe and effective launch, testing, and tracking of DoD, civil, commercial, and international space lift vehicles at multiple launch ranges. Craig conducts performance testing on all flight hardware including the RF characteristics, dynamic environments, and electrical performance testing of systems that comprise the Range Safety System. We perform instrument data collection, shock testing, vibration testing, and environmental testing of ground support infrastructure. We verify real-time telemetry data collected from launch events and report and distribute the
information to applicable supporting functional teams including the launch director, mission operations center and engineer support staff.
