Today, space affects everything in our lives – from activities such as instant approval of point of purchase sales, routine interbank transfers, disaster relief support, and weather monitoring – to providing our warfighters with the latest intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance data. Space systems and technologies are critical to our nation’s economic, scientific, and national security capabilities.

In addition, the human and robotic exploration of space inspires all of us by unlocking the secrets of the cosmos and serves to motivate our young people to take on careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

Innovative, affordable, and responsive space systems are needed to meet such ever-increasing demands. Dynetics is your provider of innovative, affordable, and responsive space systems solutions, meeting government and commercial needs.
