York Space Systems revealed plans for the expansion of its production facilities to expedite the mass manufacturing of the S-Class platform, escalating production capabilities from ten satellites per year to hundreds. The increased production also aims to enable York Space Systems to accelerate satellite delivery to its commercial and government customers from one year to less than four months after contract signing.

In addition to the production expansion plans, York Space Systems recently won a contract to deliver two spacecraft for the U.S. Air Force. As the prime contractor, York Space Systems will integrate two complete spacecraft for deployment into geosynchronous orbits. York Space Systems will design, manufacture, and test each spacecraft in Denver.

“The York team has made incredible strides this year from the successful launch of our S-CLASS platform to being awarded missions for the United States Air Force—these milestones have put us on an exciting growth trajectory,” said Dirk Wallinger, CEO of York Space Systems. “This expansion in our production will allow York to offer even faster and more affordable spacecraft solutions to our customers across commercial and government markets.”
