Building a 21st Century Aerospace Ecosystem in Michigan

Giving back to the state of Michigan is fundamental to our mission.


We believe that Michigan has the essential ingredients to become the center of manufacturing for American-made satellites. As Orbital Effects continues to grow, our promise to Michigan is to build our business within the state and to reinvest our returns into the community.

Establishing partnerships and inspiring new generations of innovators and aerospace entrepreneurs is part of how we measure success.


Government & Community Organizations

We work with policymakers to open pathways for Michigan’s aerospace growth, and provide our data to public interest organizations for more informed decision making and a better Michigan for all.



We team up with industry peers to advance leading-edge space technology and grow a Michigan-based space supply chain.


Higher Education Institutions

From internships to collaborative research, we partner with Michigan’s world-class institutions to develop talent, advance technology, and solve challenging problems.


Youth Organizations & Schools

We connect with local youth organizations and schools to educate children about space and inspire them to be future aerospace pioneers.
