Arkyd-6 Design & Engineering Philosophies

The Arkyd-6 spacecraft not only tests our core technologies, but also tests how we work together as a team. In this video, our Director of Systems Engineering Brian Douglas describes the design and engineering philosophies that worked really well for us when building Arkyd-6.

Using components that were not originally designed for space, innovating where it makes sense, and having a single owner from a hardware’s inception to its operation are some philosophies that we will continue to build upon as we design the Arkyd-301 spacecraft. ​

Next week, we’ll describe how the Arkyd-6 spacecraft ties in with the Arkyd-301 and our Exploration Mission.
