Adcole Maryland Aerospace provides small, lightweight, reliable CubeSats that are easily configurable to meet the unique missions requirements of each user. The flexibility of our CubeSat buses allows for their use in a broad spectrum of research and commercial based enterprises, while the manufacturability of our CubeSats means they can be produced reliably, cost-effectively, and quickly. 

The fact is, there are no second chances in space, not until someone invents the job of Field Service Astronaut, but until then the success or failure of your mission hinges on what happens on the ground. Adcole Maryland Aerospace has the experience, technology, spaceflight heritage and quality management systems in place to ensure your mission has the highest probability of success.
