Agile manufacturing in the NewSpace sector – with NanoAvionics

Podcast

Episode 9 of the Space Industry podcast is a discussion with NanoAvionics about the engineering and production challenges that space companies face when scaling up supply.

In this episode we speak with Vytenis Buzas, CEO and Co-Founder of NanoAvionics about agile manufacturing of space technologies.

NanoAvionics is a nanosatellite mission integrator, with facilities in North America and Europe, that delivers satellite buses and propulsion systems for the satellite applications market, and is also a satsearch member. We discuss:

  • How to develop a one-off product into a modular system while maintaining performance
  • Achieving the best balance of automated production processes and human engineering
  • How to plan for the scaling up of hardware development before it is required
  • Working with other aspects of the space domain (including ground, launch, and testing) in an agile manner
  • What can be learned from other industry sectors to help accelerate development in space
