RELEASE 05-13
NASA Partners With Micro Aerospace Solutions To Use Kennedy Labs
 CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - NASA has signed an agreement with Micro Aerospace Solutions (MAS) of Melbourne, Fla., for use of an offline hardware processing "clean room" laboratory and office space at Kennedy Space Center's Space Station Processing Facility. Micro Aerospace Solutions will utilize the area to perform small satellite flight hardware and payload assembly, as well as testing and checkout operations.

The initial two-year agreement will allow Micro Aerospace Solutions access to the facility to begin work on April 1, 2013.

Micro Aerospace Solutions is a small business established in 2000, specializing in software, electrical and mechanical design engineering services. The company is involved in a wide variety of engineering disciplines including software engineering, thruster designs, propulsion systems, attitude control, command and data handling, as well as computer and communications systems for small and nanosatellites.

Micro Aerospace Solutions will relocate current employees to Kennedy to perform the work. More employees may be added depending upon pending project announcements. MAS is lead avionics integrator and software developer for the NASA Sunjammer small satellite mission to demonstrate a solar sail for propulsion in space.
