Redwire revealed Tuesday that it acquired LoadPath, a developer of payload adapters, deployable structures, and thermal products for the space industry. This is the fifth acquisition Redwire has made this year — others include Made in Space in June, and Roccor in October.

LoadPath specializes in developing and delivering products and services for launch vehicles and satellite manufacturing. The company’s capabilities include multi-payload launch adapters, structural testing, deployable space structures, spacecraft thermal management components, and thermal analysis. LoadPath’s technology has been used on more than 20 missions with government customers such as the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and NASA, as well as commercial customers.

“LoadPath brings market-leading capabilities to augment Redwire’s space infrastructure portfolio and broaden our range of technology products and services to support our customers’ missions,” said Peter Cannito, chairman and CEO of Redwire. “We are excited to work with Adam [Biskner] and Greg [Sanford] and the LoadPath team to leverage their impressive technology flight heritage and advance their capabilities as a part of Redwire.”

Redwire was formed in June 2020 following the acquisition of Deep Space Systems and Adcole Space by AE Industrial Partners.
