Tailored to Your Mission From Tip-to-Tail

Modern defense missions demand more than piecemeal parts or patchwork products. They require hardware that seamlessly integrates disparate technologies into a unified system. Our team designs customized solutions that support hypersonic missile systems from tip-to-tail. Whether it’s making shroud systems or rocket motor nozzles, we have the manufacturing ability to produce complex systems and assemblies.

We have decades of experience serving hypersonic missions enable us to tailor technologies to meet even the tightest requirements. With the ability to design, analyze, test, and manufacture hardware all in-house, we arrive at solutions sooner, resulting in lower lead times, project costs, and superior performance than multi-vendor solutions.

Dependable Delivery

Flight-Proven Performance

Creating technology that can survive and thrive in hypersonic environments is no easy task. But working with the Karman team, Defense missions gain the assurance of field-tested designs backed by more than 20 years of flight-proven performance. Our hypersonic & SMD solutions are rigorously evaluated with in-depth design analysis tools and all-encompassing testing processes, ensuring certainty in execution.
