AMETEK EIP has decades of experience supplying hermetic connectors and packages for Space Applications.  The products we provide are critical to all applications where they are used.  Whether it be on a space suit, satellite, space station or a rocket engine, mechanical and electrical functionality are critical.  

Through history all crewed space stations have been within Low Earth Orbit (LEO). Only the Apollo program's lunar missions sent humans beyond LEO.  More than 3,000 satellites are in LEO, which is where you will find satellites commonly used for communications and remote sensing satellite systems. SpaceX Starlink satellites, the Internal Space Station and Hubble Space Telescope are in LEO.

These Low Earth Orbit systems now blanket our atmosphere and have changed our way of life with ever evolving voice and data communications worldwide.

The total number of these satellites around Earth LEO and beyond are estimated to continue increasing as SpaceX and other providers continually launch satellites into orbit.  Some say that we will be sending over 42,000 satellites into space within the next two decades! 

The Space economy is pushing technology innovation including hermetic interconnects and packaging to provide solutions for current and future Space Missions’ needs.

Private Industry, NASA and the ESA are leading and innovating with commercial and international partners such as AMETEK EIP to send humans farther into space and bring back to Earth new knowledge and opportunities.

At AMETEK EIP these decades of experience have allowed us to develop a deep expertise in the unique challenges that are faced in this extreme environment. The products we develop and manufacture for Space are of the highest quality and designed to be utilized in fracture critical applications. AMETEK EIP has demonstrated the ability to design and develop complete interconnect solutions that solve the most technical challenging requirements for Space Applications.
