Russell Blink and Phil Eaton, along with financiers and businessmen David Mitchell, Arlen Swartzentruber, Dave Huber and John Quinn launched Exos Aerospace, Inc. on Wednesday, May 14, 2014.
The ribbon cutting included no ribbons, only rocket launches by eager children. Attending were Mayors, Congressmen, Brigadier Generals, and a couple hundred eager people interested in what was happening in their community. Festivities included patriotic speeches, a country band and old-fashioned Texas BBQ in the small town of Caddo Mills, Texas, East of Dallas.
The company is new but the achievements of the team go back more than a decade, and are impressive.
These include competing in the X-Prize Cup, and claiming nearly $1 million in prizes for rocket and guidance designs, for their previous company. The team also designed and manufactured the propulsion systems for the Rocket Racing League and had multiple contracts for NASA, including a lunar lander which NASA now owns.
The Exos team has developed and tested over a hundred rocket engines and dozens of flying vehicles, and all of this has led to some of the most impressive private commercial reusable rocket designs and concepts in the world today.
Exos Aerospace, Inc. has developed rockets that are reliable, reusable, better for the environment, and easier on clients’ budgets.
Exos will help your school or university gain Federal and/or State grants in areas of agricultural, biological, medical, and other zero G experiments. If you need your orbital payloads pre-tested, we will get this done in an expedited fashion for you.
Our payload integration methods are the best and because of this we can launch your payload sooner rather than later, and give you the zero G time you need. Our state-of-the art retrieval system allows you access to your payload in minutes because we bring the rocket back to the point of launch.
If you need to fly “now,” rather than a year from now, and you need minutes of zero G time, and immediate access to your payload, Exos Aerospace, Inc. is your space flight solution.
