SpaceTech space solar arrays YORK SPACE SYSTEMSYork Space Systems makes spaceflight more affordable, pushing the smallsat trend in the new space market. York was founded to radically improve spacecraft affordability and reliability and is leading the industry in transforming and enabling next generation space mission operations worldwide. We are proud to be part of this success story.

Having a contract with a new customer for the first time is great. Being selected for further contracts after a successful mission is even more valuable to us. This is especially true as the first solar array we delivered to York is the first solar array flying with our fully automated PVA laydown process, laying the foundation for a whole range of recently acquired contracts.
