Space Qualified Manufacturing Solutions at Work

AEHF Satellites – Advanced Extremely High Frequency

With manufacturing experience ranging from low to extremely high-frequency RF products, NEO Tech has manufactured many high-reliability and high-quality space products used in AEHF Satellites.

These satellites provide military communications and jointly serve the Armed Forces of the US and it’s International partners.

097-Satellite DC DC2


Opportunity – Mars Rover

Opportunity has been active on its Mars  Mission since 2004. The rover has exceeded its operating plan by 11 years, thanks to the space qualified products that are surpassing their life expectancy. NEO Tech is proud to have manufactured and assembled some of the products that are being utilized in the Mars Rover.


International Space Station (ISS)

With our Class K certified buildings, we have been able to help NASA partners engineer and manufacture high- reliability space products that will be used in the ISS.

Astronaut Robert Behnken toured our production of Lithium Ion Batteries to be used on the ISS. See our Press Release for more details of his visit.


Space Fence

Space Fence is a U.S. Federal Government space surveillance system. It was implemented to track satellites and space debris in Earth’s orbit. NEO Tech has manufactured space qualified products for companies that’ve been contracted to be part of the government’s program.


Space Shuttle

NEO Tech has been partnering with some of the world’s largest Aerospace companies to help them manufacture and assemble space qualified products, some that have been used in space shuttles.

Space Qualified Manufacturing Case Study

Space Electronics Company Case Study

“Raytheon is very pleased with NEO Tech and we are
NOT easy to please”

 Chairman and former CEO, Raytheon

"Collaboration, communication and cooperation
trump lowest price"

COO, Oraya

"It was like having an internal manufacturing operation
without the overhead"

President and CEO, Oraya

"The middle ground is a little hard to identify, and we needed to find someone flexible enough to play both games"
