Planet Enterprises strives to bring the future to life through bold and innovative new approaches to aerospace design challenges.
"Provide ships or sails adapted to the heavenly breezes, and there will be some who will brave even that void."
- Johannes Kepler, 1608.
Our small company culture fuels the fire of innovation. Space design challenges are seen from a fresh perspective and backed with decades of design experience. The Deming Philosophy, Lean Principles, and Voice of the Customer (VOC) are core to our agile design process.
Local clients can have their design in hand within a week. Have a service-ready metal part fabricated in house or by one of our partners within three weeks.
TRAINING & EXPERTISE
Our experts can help train your engineering or manufacturing team. Custom-tailored solutions focusing on Additive Manufacturing, Lean Principles, Continuous Improvement and Applied Math are available.
We can help you make initial assemblies and shipsets, and facilitate your manufacturing transition to large scale production with one of our partner companies when you are ready to grow.
Planet Enterprises began as a rural startup in the summer of 2000. Our first project was improving a valveless pulsejet engine design to support undersea vehicle integration. This was the world's first attempt at leveraging undersea supercavitation technology with an airbreathing pulsejet propulsion system.
Today, the company focuses primarily on novel space robotic systems and acts as an incubator for cutting-edge space hardware solutions. Projects are handed off to the engineering staff of our customers after the incubation phase, as our expertise focuses on overcoming the challenges of rapid innovation early in the design phase.
