Safe, Reliable, Affordable, and Routine Access to Cislunar Space. We are leading development of the space superhighway with the deployment of commercial capabilities — to provide data, perform future payload hosting, in-space testbed, deploy spacecraft, and perform in-space logistics services for our partners.

Quantum Space is a commercial space infrastructure and services company aimed at disrupting the current norms of the industry. Building the first commercial lunar robotic outpost.
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.
Data and Information
Generating first of a kind information gathered by space-borne technology equipment.
Carrying payloads for automated experiments in a deep space environment.
Proffering flight and data experimental environment for new and emerging technologies.
Logistics Services & Satellite Deployment
Providing ongoing services for vehicles in cislunar space to maximize space systems lifecycle and carry satellites for deployment into custom trajectories.
QS-1: Establishing the Space Superhighway
In 2024, QS-1 will be the first step in establishing a superhighway between the Earth and the Moon by deploying commercial capabilities that enable spacecraft to operate in and travel through cislunar space and beyond more effectively and efficiently.
QS-1 will fly in cislunar space primarily around the two Earth-Moon-Lagrange Points 1 and 2 (EM-L1 and EM-L2) to establish commercial operations for the company.
Quantum Scout mission objectives include:
- Producing space situational and space domain awareness data products
- Hosting customer payloads
- Advanced cislunar navigation methods
- Autonomous station keeping
The mission will leverage commercial ground station networks for space to ground communication. Mission and payload control will be conducted from a Quantum control center.
A cornerstone project aimed to provide data products and digital services for customers from cislunar space. QuantumNet will consist of a fleet of space vehicles known as “Scouts” positioned in cislunar space, the area around the Earth extending out to just beyond the Moon's orbit.
Each Scout will deliver multiple services including:
- Space domain awareness
- Space weather forecasting
- Positioning, navigation, and timing
- Significant onboard compute capabilities for artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML).
By 2032, more than 40 Scout vehicles will make up points, or “nodes,” at strategic locations within cislunar space to create QuantumNet.
