SSO-A Payload Adapters

PRODUCTS AND SERVICES

VERITREK

Veritrek is an engineering analysis suite developed to improve upon and enhance the traditional thermal analysis process, by enabling 1000’s of simulation result in seconds. Built for Thermal Desktop®, Veritrek leverages the power of reduced-order models. Veritrek has helped solve challenging problems including evaluating MARS 2020 Helicopter thermal sensitivities and the Lunar Lander cryo tank design sensitivities.

PAYLOAD ADAPTERS

LoadPath is a market leading provider of integrated structural system that support multiple payloads on launch vehicles. This launch approach maximizes the number of satellites integrated on a single launch campaign, thereby lowering the cost and lead-time to access space. The need for improved access to space will only intensify in the foreseeable future. Over the next decade an estimated 7,000 small satellites will be launched, a six-fold increase over the past decade. LoadPath’s payload adapters will help achieve the necessary launch cadence by maximizing launch vehicle payload capacity.

MASS SIMULATORS

Mass simulators preserve payload configuration dynamics in the event a spacecraft is not ready for flight at the time of integration. Our highly customizable mass simulators are tunable to match spacecraft mass, center of mass, modal frequencies, interfaces, and geometry.

DEPLOYABLE SYSTEMS

LoadPath provides design, fabrication, and delivery of custom deployable systems primarily for CubeSats. Examples include: tape spring booms and hinges, origami structures, slit tube rollable booms, multi-axis hinges, gravity gradient booms, and deployable antennas.

GROUND SUPPORT EQUIPMENT

LoadPath has provided Ground Support Equipment (GSE) for a number of satellite and launch manufacturers. We pride ourselves in delivering high-performance equipment to enable successful missions.

TESTING

LoadPath provides end-to-end structural and thermal testing from test plan development through test design, execution, data analysis, and reporting. We evaluate mechanical systems from material characterization to components and subassemblies to full-scale structural qualification.

ANALYSIS

LoadPath provides component- to system-level structural and thermal analysis. We have broad experience working with both DoD and NASA analysis standards.

SMALLSAT THERMAL HARDWARE

Our suite of high-power SmallSat thermal hardware includes deployable radiators, phase change panels, and high thermal conductivity transport devices.
