Charles Pooley Research and Development Facility

… a way to make launches become less expensive, smaller, more numerous, more available by a factor of thousands…
— Charles Pooley

A round of internal voting has determined that the facility would be named after the late Charles Pooley, author of Microlaunchers, whose commitment to the vision of small, low cost launch vehicles inspired us to turn the idea into a reality.

Most of the work has been complete at the facility and we have started operations this week. The space test chamber (which is being built), together with the greatly expanded capabilities of our electronics R&D lab, are accelerating the development of numerous nanosatellite products. At the same time, we are excited to make use of the new CNC machine to cut turnaround time from design to hardware with a number of new interesting launch vehicle technologies that are being developed.
