Blue Canyon Technologies – Extracting satellites from Lafete

Mechanical technicians at Blue Canyon Technologies are building satellites from the floor to ceiling windows in a solar-powered Lafaye laboratory.

“I think we have the best institution in the business,” said business development specialist Josh Duncan. People from defense or designated companies really appreciate those windows.

The Blue Canyon seems to be on the brink of rapid growth as the Renaissance begins. In December, Massachusetts-based Riteyon Technologies Corporation (NYSE: RTX) was acquired. Raytheon officials say the successful start-up company will double its workforce over the next three to five years. The published reports range from $ 350 to $ 426 million.

During a visit to the 80,000-square-foot station on Friday, Duncan showed off the company’s buses (cargo containers), microspheres, cubes, star monitors, heat exchangers and a vibration test unit.

Designed from the ground up, the Blue Canyon has been in the area for more than a year and is in full swing, said spokeswoman Natalie Miller. There are about 400 employees working in the company’s Boulder area.

The company It launched in 2008 and launched its first satellite in 2016. There are currently 30 BCT satellites orbiting the Earth. One went to Mars.

“We are a real poster for the development of a space company,” Duncan said.

Its satellites benefit customers from all three sectors – commercial, civil and defense.

“They all use the same platform,” Duncan said.

They build four satellites at a time and can produce 20 to 50 a year.

“We do our best at home,” he said. We do our best to control our own destiny.

It ensures that delays occur, and that satellite components are properly built for BTC details. It also removes bad actors from the Blue Canyon supply chain.

The company In 2020, it provided 20 satellites.

Defense clients often say, “We are not ready.”

“Space (development) is always measured in years and decades,” he said. “Now it’s too late.”

Microscopes are small satellites, weighing 22 to 200 pounds. Cubs are satellites made of 40-inch wide cube modules weighing less than 3 pounds. The constellation is a camera that allows you to look at the stars around you and find out where they are.

The company has also developed a way to operate satellites without engines or fuel using rotating devices. He then uses the earth’s magnetic field to control the “spinning rod” (magnetic wire rod), says Duncan.

The satellites “live” for about two and a half to five years.
