Millennium Space Systems said it has opened its “Factory of the New Millennium,” in El Segundo, California.
The 70,000 square-foot facility will accommodate all of Millennium´s satellite engineering, manufacturing and mission operations activities in addition to 12,000 sq-ft of dedicated SCIF space. Strategically located adjacent to LA Air Force Base and the Aerospace Corp., and less than two miles from LAX, the new factory supports Millennium´s current programs as well as anticipated near-term expansion.
The factory was built to accommodate the design, engineering and production of more than 40 satellites simultaneously, and its layout reduces the risks associated with the manufacturing of space vehicles. Assembly, integration, and test areas are located in the same building, all within eye contact of the engineering research and development area, promoting efficient communications and rapid development cycles.
Millennium Space Systems is a privately held, employee-owned company founded in 2001, providing alternative and relevant solutions to today´s aerospace challenges. For more information, visit www.millennium-space.com.
