We have an experienced and reputable team that can provide payload integration services. SEOPS is a full-service provider for our launch system and deployer solution products. Our team can provide the coordination, manifesting, safety, and verification for your mission. Our team is launch vehicle agnostic and able to support mission operations in our POCC for hosted payloads.

Space Related Research & Development

SEOPS is continuously looking at different ways to solve problems, evolve our current solutions, and meet future customer requirements. Please let us know how we can support your team from all aspects of the systems engineering lifecycle. Our Team is constantly looking at LEO to Cisluar architectures to provide the best solutions for our customers.

Spacecraft Engineering Design & Manufacturing

SEOPS has pioneers in spacecraft engineering design, specifically in launch and deployment systems, International Space Station (ISS) experiments and human rated habits to name a few. We have the ability to execute the entire lifecycle leveraging our manufacturing partners to certify and fly hardware to space.

Under the SEOPS brand we have successfully designed and deployed multiple launch systems, created several new deployment and separation system technologies while expanding our ever-growing Intellectual Property portfolio.

Launch Systems & Hosted Payloads

SLINGSHOT is a >450KM / 51.6d deployment solution that leverages the most reliable space infrastructure in the world — the ISS and associated visiting vehicles (Cygnus/Dragon). Slingshot offers a customer the ability fly in a soft bag and deploy up to conventional 12U CubeSats and hosted payloads that can vary in size.

Maximum deployer configuration for our slingshot launch system system is 12 x 6U deployers (72U). We can also fit more per U in a hosted payload configuration. Our system is very flexible in formats supported that include the following for a 6U deployer:

  • 1U X 1U (P-POD, ISIPOD)
  • 1U X 1U + "Tuna Can" (P-POD, ISIPOD)
  • 1U X 2U (P-POD, ISIPOD)
  • 1U X 2U + "Tuna Can" (P-POD, ISIPOD)
  • 1U X 3U (P-POD, ISIPOD)
  • 1U X 3U + "Tuna Can" (P-POD, ISIPOD)
  • 2U X 2U (PSC Tab, P-POD, ISIPOD)
  • 2U X 2U + "Dual Tuna Can" (P-POD, ISIPOD)
  • 2U X 3U (PSC Tab, P-POD, ISIPOD)
  • 2U X 3U + "Dual Tuna Can" (P-POD, ISIPOD)


CubeSat Deployer

Equalizer is a U.S. built deployer that has a preliminary mass around 7Kg and supports 3U, 6U, and 12U configurations. Also, we have the capability to custom build deployers equalizer deployment system if needed by a customer. The equalizer has the following characteristics:

  • Bottom and Back Mount Capable
  • Resettable Release Mechanisms
  • Rear and Forward Position Sensors
  • ISI-POD/PPOD Compatible
  • Pusher Plate Anti-vibration System
  • Can be Configured for 2x6U

  • Rail and Tab Formats
  • Smooth Internal Walls
  • Totally Enclosed


Separation System

Rifle is a U.S. built separation system. Below are Rifle attributes: Rifle Separation System

  • Lightest Separation System in the Market - maximizes sat mass
  • Zero tipoff rate - no spring/CG tuning
  • Uses Heritage Technology - lowers deployment risk
  • Resettable Release Mechanisms - repeatable testing
  • Stowed and Release Sensors - positive feedback
  • Reconfigurable to Smaller Diameter Configurations - flexibility
  • American Made - reduces ITAR concerns
  • 1U X 1U (P-POD, ISIPOD)

Heritage Launch System

OCTO-EQ is a launch system designed to support up to 96U on one 24” port in a nominal configuration. This launch system utilizes heritage technology and can fly on SpaceX Rideshare Missions to Sun Synchronous (SSO). OCTO-EQ is a zero delta v platform that maximizes the economics of the port and executes its mission based upon the launch vehicle orbit.

Vacuum Trash System

Vacuum Trash System (VTS) is a multi-patent pending trash disposal system.

  • Accommodates all Wet & Dry Trash
  • VTS system
    • Takes advantage of the physical principle that water will only boil at a certain pressure and temperature combination - otherwise will remain in liquid state
      • In vacuum, water boils at 0°C/32°F which is well below the ambient temperature (maximum 40°C/104°F) that the trash and airlock will be at when depressurized
      • The vapor pressure of water at 40°C/104°F is 1.07 psi or 7.3% of sea level atmospheric pressure; thus, if a habitat like the International Space Station wet trash can be maintained at approximately 2 psi (~2X safety margin) the water contained in the trash would not boil until it reaches 51.7°C/125°F
  • Inflatable pressure vessel designed to hold 2 psi is a lightweight structure compared to one that can handle a full atmosphere (14.7 psi)
  • Enables utilization of a lightweight (~9 kg) deployable trash bag that can be folded up for launch/on-orbit stowage and fit through any hatch
