Sidus Space, Inc., a space-as-a-service satellite company focused on hardware manufacturing; multidisciplinary engineering services; satellite design, production, launch planning, and mission operations; and in-orbit support, unveils a video from its partner, Markforged, who is a key player in Sidus’ 3D-printed LizzieSat satellites.
The video is featured on Markforged's YouTube channel. Markforged is the innovator behind The Digital Forge, an industrial platform of 3D printers, software and materials that empowers manufacturers like Sidus Space to craft parts when and where they need them.
“Markforged 3D printers initially played an important role in our successful External Flight Test Platform (EFTP) mission, an on-orbit external experimental facility that was hosted on the NanoRacks International Space Station External Platform (NREP),” says Carol Craig, Sidus Space founder and CEO. “Building on the success of our EFTP program, we have continued to leverage Markforged solutions in the development of LizzieSat.”
Sidus Space's LizzieSat multipurpose constellation is designed to meet the conditions of commercial and governmental demands in the interconnected, cloud-based, and data-driven world. The LizzieSat platform aims to shift away from static and low-frequency satellite imaging and geospatial solutions toward on-demand access of real-time geospatial intelligence.
By leveraging Markforged 3D printers, Sidus Space has been able to fabricate components quickly and effectively for multiple programs, which enables the company to meet customer requirements cost-effectively and timely.
“Markforged has been an incredible partner to us over the years,” says Craig. “We are honored to be highlighted in one of their videos, as it speaks to our commitment to providing innovative, reliable and cost-effective solutions to our customers.”
