Applied Defense Solutions (ADS) is a leader in aerospace engineering, software development, and space situational awareness. Collaborating with NASA, Commercial and International Partners, the Department of Defense, and the Intelligence Community, we provide critical support for space exploration and satellite operations, protection, & resiliency.
Founded in 2005, our team comprises top-notch research scientists, program managers, software developers, aerospace engineers, and business professionals. Our highly trained technical staff has flown dozens of satellites, including NASA science missions, military communications satellites, and commercial imagery satellites. This year, ADS will add to our satellite operations pedigree by supporting several upcoming NASA, DoD, and commercial satellite and constellation launches.
Additionally, our software and aerospace engineers collaborate to build innovative flight dynamics and mission planning software systems that automate trajectory design and maneuver planning, orbit determination and propagation, collision assessment and avoidance, and other mission critical functions. Our astrodynamics modeling and simulation capabilities span all orbital regimes including LEO, HEO, GEO, Lunar, CisLunar, and Interplanetary and enable real-time hardware/software-in-the-loop testing of GNC/RPO algorithms and flight software.
