As a premier microsatellite manufacturer, we understand that risk management is a top-level concern. MSCIís exacting, menu-based Product Assurance plan ensures that every aspect of a project meets with the highest quality controls, with the ability to tailor options to meet each clientís specific needs.


Our ability to provide quality commercial-grade components, top-quality processes and recommendations for the purchase or manufacture of aerospace-grade components only where required, enables us to help our customers reduce risk and save money.

Our years of experience and expertise in the design, build and operation of microsatellites and MicroWheels (reaction wheels) Ė reflected in our outstanding flight heritage Ė means we can confidently stand behind our components and processes.
