Oakman Aerospace

Littleton – oak-aero.com – Founded: 2012

Colorado is in the top five states consistently for its presence in the aerospace industry, and veteran-owned Oakman Aerospace contributes to the state’s impressive standing, providing cutting-edge products and services involved in space systems architectures, spacecraft and satellite design, development and mission payload and data distribution services.

Oakman prides itself on its customer service along with rapid and responsive modular technology and interoperability constructs that allow related and competing organizations in the space to build on the same interface standards and innovate simultaneously.

Oakman is a strong STEM education proponent, having recently supported, along with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, a local high school in Jefferson County to build a bioreactor that will be sent into space.

WATCH FOR: Oakman is betting on an uptick in opportunities in the commercial space biz as regulations have relaxed and costs have decreased.
