Northrop Grumman Astro Aerospace has a portfolio of unique deployable mechanism products developed for aerospace applications. From large truss structures to small mechanisms, Astro's products are on hundreds of spacecraft past and present. Our core competencies are aerospace engineering, mechanical rapid prototyping, structural engineering, composites engineering, mechanisms design, structural analysis, and precision manufacturing.

We believe our current products have potential applications in new markets outside of aerospace, and are seeking ideas to discover these new opportunities.
