Public Profile

Founded with the objective of radically improving spacecraft affordability and reliability, transforming and enabling next generation space mission operations worldwide, Denver CO based York Space Systems specializes in both end-to-end customer solutions and the manufacture of spacecraft platforms. Though only minimally SBIR involved - in receipt of one of the rather different Air Force projects of a while back - a small money/quick decision - the firm appears to live up to its promise. In early October 2022 it was announced that the firm had been awarded a $200 million contract to build and operate 12 satellites with experimental military communications payloads. Shortly after, it was also announced that AEI had agreed to acquire a majority stake funds and that accounts managed by BlackRock Private Equity Partners had also agreed to invest alongside AE Industrial in the transaction
