Aerospace Structures | Design, Test, and Materials
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, deployable structures , 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.
NASA SBIR Phase I Awarded LoadPath was awarded NASA Phase I SBIR titled, "High heat flux Enhanced Acquisition and Transport system for Small spacecraft (HEATS)". HEATS is an innovative, passive, two-phase thermal transport system that will help realize small-spacecraft missions of tomorrow. Unlike state-of-the-art thermal transport systems (e.g. heat pipes and loop heat pipes), HEATS can mitigate higher heat loads and fluxes at lower cost and mass while adapting to a wider-range of heat source/sink configurations.
NASA SBIR Phase I Subcontract Awarded
LoadPath will provide support to i2C Solutions on a recently awarded NASA Ph I effort. LoadPath will provide thermal modeling and analysis services for this development effort. More
LoadPath attends the CubeSat Developers' Workshop
The 12th annual CubeSat Developers' Workshop was held at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, CA. The workshop is relevant to several ongoing CubeSat development efforts within LoadPath including deployable antennas and booms, thermal control systems, dispensing technologies, and payload adapters. A full-size CubeStack was also on display at the MOOG CSA Engineering booth. More
