Full suite of scalable and modular space robotics and services brings the world’s most flight-proven capabilities to any mission or application

MDA Space announced MDA SKYMAKERTM, a new suite of space robotics purpose-built to meet the diverse needs of our customers’ most ambitious missions. Unveiled at the Space Symposium conference in Colorado Springs, MDA SKYMAKERTM, the world’s leading space robotics technology and services, is now available for all missions and applications.

Derived from peerless Canadarm technology, MDA SKYMAKERTM provides innovative space companies and ventures with access to the world’s most flight-proven space robotics solutions and services, supporting a diverse range of missions including lunar surface rovers and landers, space stations, satellite servicing in all orbits, and in-space assembly and manufacturing.

“To achieve mission success in the commercial space age, you need the confidence to move boldly and quickly, and that starts with choosing a mission partner with capabilities and a track record you can trust,” said Mike Greenley, CEO of MDA Space. “MDA Space has set the global standard in human-rated space robotics for more than 40 years. With MDA SKYMAKERTM, we are bringing to market the next generation of our industry-leading space robotics, built on the foundation of the most technically advanced robotics solutions ever operated in space, in an efficient, adaptable and highly accessible kit.”

Key customer benefits of the MDA SKYMAKERTM robotics suite include:

  • Greater efficiency and robotics flexibility: Customers can now select from a range of high-performance high-reliability robotics products and services for a tailored solution.
  • Significantly improved mission economics: Customers, regardless of size or application, can now benefit from economy of scale pricing associated with one-to-many commercial products and services.
  • Faster time to market: Modular solutions, long-term product roadmaps and state-of-the-art manufacturing and production capacity minimize time to deployment for customers with aggressive commercial mission schedules.
  • Full-service mission operations: Customers can reduce operational costs by having MDA Space perform mission operations from our new state-of-the-art commercial mission control centre, leveraging decades of robotics space mission design and mission operations support.
