CAPE TOWN, South Africa - Aug. 20, 2020 - PRLog -- Dragonfly Aerospace will pick up the flag of South African space engineering and space missions. Dragonfly Aerospace's mission is to create small and medium high-resolution screening satellites and payloads designed for taking high-quality constellations photos or provide constant imaging of the Earth in all spectra. This allows the business to operate with unique intelligence for making people's lives better.

"Dragonfly Aerospace team has a 25-year experience in design and manufacturing of satellites and components, from the first South African Sun satellite – SUNSAT – to modern microsatellites," Dragonfly Aerospace CEO Bryan Dean says. "Our engineers and experts have made 13 satellites and payloads since 1999 we are not going to stop. With NewSpace race uprising, we believe many businesses will look for opportunities in Space and we would be ready to help."

Dragonfly Aerospace production will be based on a 3000m² facility, with a third of it reserved for clean-room zones for manufacturing microsatellite parts and details. Manufacture is located in a Cape Town suburb, on the Techno Park area. Dragonfly center also equipped with environmental testing laboratories and offices. All labs and clean-rooms have been certified by ISO 8 standard, while the assembling areas for imagers are ISO 7 and ISO 6 driven.

The company plan is to produce 48 satellites per year with enough production capacity to build up to 16 objects at the same time. Dragonfly Aerospace is able to design and produce space satellites in a range of 50-600kg and imagers from 1U CubeSat to 400mm aperture for commercial and civil purposes.
