Company Description

Orbital Assembly Corporation is a large scale space construction company that is launching the next phase of human exploration of space, artificial gravity, and rapid on-orbit assembly of large structures.

Our vision is to create a space construction company for the design, manufacture and assembly of large structures in space, including commercial space stations, space solar power platforms, and propellant depots. To achieve this objective, we developed several design patents for in-space assembly robots. We plan to purchase capabilities from other companies as required. To enable a robust, human-centered space economy, our capabilities are geared toward the construction of a Voyager Space Station™ (VSS). We plan to build the rotating space station in stages, starting with a small-scale demonstration station, and one or more free-flying microgravity facilities, utilizing VSS components.

Key Deal Facts

The Future Is In Rotation™. OAC is working to create the first of many large-scale sustainable artificial gravity environments. Other industry players are trying to recreate the International Space Station's 20 year old, microgravity environment.
OAC is positioned to take advantage of, and dominate, a market that is projected to be worth $147 billion per year within a few years.
OAC plans to tap into a massive space tourism market that has been repressed by high launch costs for the last 60 years. Because we plan to provide a comfortable and healthy environment using a modular approach at scale, we believe we will be able to offer unparalleled luxury accommodations at a lower cost compared to other commercial stations.
