LoadPath specializes in the development and delivery of advanced engineered products and services, particularly those critical to the launch vehicle and satellite community. We provide design, analysis, testing, and fabrication of aerospace structural systems and components within the company’s five core competencies; structural design, thermal management, composite fabrication, strain energy mechanisms, and structural testing. Our highly technical engineering staff has extensive experience in the design and evaluation of multiple payload adapters, deployable payloads, CubeSat components and launch accommodations, reconfigurable thermal control subsystems, missile structures, and reentry vehicles throughout the complete concept-to-flight development cycle. Our exceptional experimental capabilities range from material characterization through full-scale structural testing. All aspects of our product and services development and delivery are controlled by an AS9100C certified quality management system.
Phase I SBIR Awarded The Air Force Research Laboratory awarded a SBIR Phase I to LoadPath. The objective of this project is to provide a mitigating solution to chip level heating issues.To support this objective, a Flexible and Enhanced Active Thermal Strap for Satellite Thermal Management (FEATS) will be designed, fabricated and tested.
LoadPath 3rd Annual Isotopes Deck Party
The LoadPath team, families, friends, and co-workers enjoyed an Albuquerque Isotopes baseball game against the New Orleans Zephyrs. LoadPath commandeered the Isotopes Delta Dental Deck for a party on the patio which was filled to capacity with over 50 people attending. More
U.S. Patent Awarded
LoadPath Senior Engineer Dr. Joseph Footdale was the Co-Inventor on Unites States Patent 8,434,196 titled, "Multi-Axis Compliant Hinge" awarded on May 7, 2013. The patent describes the design of a hinge component that is used in conjunction with strut elements to form a collapsible structure. The hinges behaves similar to a pin-clevis hinges but has increased compliance during the deployment sequence allowing connected struts to translate and rotate finite amounts relative to each other. Once deployed, the hinges lock out to form strong and stiff joints. More
