Mechanical Engineering

Our mechanical engineers apply engineering, physics, and materials sciences to design components and systems for spaceflight, from cameras to Lunar Landers.

Mechanical Design

Design, Assembly, Test, and Anaylsis

The whole is only as good as the sum of all of its parts. We design systems that incorporate effectively and don't sacrifice power efficiency. We assemble systems and test them in preparation for flight operations.



We design mechanisms for flight and analysis on spacecraft. They are tested for quality and certified flight-ready.



Our mechanical products are high quality and made to last even in extreme situations.



DSS has expanded into production. We now machine components and assemble them.



Not only is it important to make excellent parts, but integrating the parts well is paramount.

Testing and Analyses

Quality Assured Through System Checks

Everything we do is certified flight-ready. Our systems are tested and analyzed to meet the high standards of our customers and ourselves. We call for quality and safety above all else.


  • Thermal

    We test our components and systems in our thermal vacuum chambers and closely analyze the results to meet requirements.

  • Stress

    Our systems are all vibration tested to ensure they can survive the stress of launch.

  • Loads

    Force, weight, power, and air resistance are key factors in launch and recovery operations, we account for all of them.

  • Deformation

    We use shock testing to observe any and all deformation that might occur on parts going through a sudden shock.

  • Dynamics

    Simulations give insights on the practicality and success of a mission. Problems can be found before the spacecraft flies.

  • Life

    Because spacecraft often carry astronauts, we test for the usability and sustainability of our systems with human beings.
