ARATOM began supporting government programs, usually offering generous budgets, rather friendly schedules and a well-defined roadmap based upon consolidated, low-risk, traditional industry-standard practices.
In early 2000s a new approach emerged to overcome the challenges associated with space missions engineering. Strongly focused on business, this new trend known as New Space, imposed a 180 degrees turn in the industry, lowering the barriers of access to Space.
ARATOM adapted and made its ways into the new era of space by working with commercial applications and startup programs. We learned how to apply our knowledge and experience in mechanical systems development in a cost-effective manner: utilizing specialized, small teams taking part of a greater interdisciplinary network, all committed to encounter the aggressive schedules outlined in our business plans.
These demanding schedules forced us to step out of our comfort zone and take risks like never before, leveraging our skills to minimize them.
We consider ourselves part of the New Space trend, committed to collaborate with our customers combining these modern methodologies with robust background, attending always our more deep-rooted principles and values:
“I strongly believe that when joining your project, we are not just going to provide best engineering services, but also share our passion for space exploration”
