Manufacturing Capacity Full for 2018

Sinclair Interplanetary will not be accepting orders for flight equipment from new customers this year.  At the moment we are building ACS equipment for 29 satellites.  That's plenty.  We need to focus on doing that work right before we can take on additional responsibilities.  The order book will re-open on January 1, 2019.

We are currently making flight model RW3-0.06 reaction wheels and ST-16RT2 star trackers in bulk.  This process naturally produces occasional engineering-model units.  They will be offered for sale on this website as they become available.

I am often asked why I don’t expand the company to meet the demand.  We are growing slowly (job ad here still active) but I don’t want to be selfish.  The whole space community benefits when there are many suppliers of complementary products, each with their own ideas and strengths.
