Mission-Critical Solutions

Karman Space & Defense is an integrated concept-to-production solutions provider for the space and defense industry’s most complex and mission-critical projects. Through combined capabilities, advanced technologies, and history of performance of our four divisions, we provide solutions for integrated dynamic systems, assemblies, and advanced manufacturing that are used in our industry’s most critical programs, including crewed-space flight and hypersonic missions.

Karman Space and Defense offers vertically integrated capabilities for all of our product lines.  Vertically integrated production means that Karman can develop solutions, fabricate high quality parts and structures, assemble using advanced and special processes, and validate system or assembly performance through non-destructive testing (NDT), environment, lot acceptance and qualification testing.

Across all four divisions, our solutions often start with a concept design that is matured through detailed design, analysis and test to CDR and product qualification and production.

Karman also provides advanced capability for efficient design for manufacture (DFM) and build to print solutions.
