Services Offered

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.

Here are Craig Directors Mark Mikolajczyk and Greg Sheppard enjoying the reception hosted by The Coalition for Deep Space Exploration and sponsored by several companies including Craig Technologies.
This reception precedes the 2020 SLS-Orion-EGS Suppliers Conference in Washington D.C. This invitation only event gathers Suppliers that support the SLS, Orion, and Exploration Ground systems from around the country to get updates on the various NASA programs.
This is followed the next day by visits to Capital Hill to meet with Representatives and Senators and engage their support for the NASA budget on these space programs.
Building America’s next great rocket, SLS, to launch Orion, our deep space crew transport, and the Exploration Ground Systems to launch these systems requires not only technical expertise, but the long-term commitment of many partners, who understand that achieving Earth independence depends on setting a course and staying the course. The SLS-Orion-EGS supplier team continues to steadfastly support a national commitment to building a better tomorrow – today.

SSIKLOPS DEPLOYS STPSat-4 FROM ISS

STPSat-4, an experimental spacecraft for the Department of Defense’s Space Test Program (STP), was successfully deployed, on January 29, 2020, from the International Space Station (ISS) using the Space Stations Integrated Kinetic Launcher for Orbital Payload Systems (SSIKLOPS). SSIKLOPS, a NASA developed technology, is a platform that robotically deploys satellites from the ISS and is designed to provide a method to transfer internally stowed satellites to the external environment.

Craig Technologies Aerospace Solutions (Craig) is playing an active role in the Commercialization of Low Earth Orbit (LEO) by partnering with NASA on a contract that gives Craig exclusive use of SSIKLOPS for government and commercial customers who seek access to LEO for their micro-satellites. Craig provides turnkey services to manage and execute the successful integration and on-orbit operations of satellite payloads using SSIKLOPS. SSIKLOPS fills the payload deployment gap between small cubesat launchers and major payloads by supporting the LEO microsatellite market (50-100kg).

In addition to SSIKLOPS, Craig offers the CraigX Flight Test Platform (FTP), designed, manufactured and assembled inhouse, which mounts externally to the International Space Station (ISS). Together, this hardware positions Craig to be a leader in the rapidly emerging Space 2.0 ecosystem. Craig leverages its 20 years of engineering, proprietary technology, and precision manufacturing expertise to offer clients a customizable, lightweight, low-cost satellite alternative to test electronics, propulsion, optics, communication or any other type of innovative technology at a fraction of the cost and higher refresh rate of all other launch options.
