At Quantum Space we envision a future where innovation and sustainability meet propelling human progress, economic growth and expanding access to space, and its ability to improve life on Earth.
Bringing together veteran space heavyweights, we are leading the next commercial Space frontier with the development of our robotic outpost, that will serve multiple users with deploying satellites, hosting payloads and acquisition of data and logistics services via customizable missions from locations in lunar and Earth orbits.
Plans to develop platforms hosting payloads in cislunar space serviced by robotic spacecraft. 
“We’re trying to transform the way we deploy and operate spacecraft,” said Steve Jurczyk, co-founder, president and chief executive of Quantum Space, in an interview. “We’re really an in-space services company, and those services are enabled by a new platform called an outpost, which is a spacecraft designed to be serviceable.”
The outpost, he said, would consist of two components. One is a spacecraft bus that serves as a platform for hosting payloads, using modular “plug-and-play” interfaces. The other is a spacecraft that would deliver payloads to the platform and install them using robotic manipulators.
