Pyramid Space Team

The Pyramid Space team consists of a small group of individuals that specialize in functional prototype development. Throughout its eighteen year history our company has provided support for many high profile commercial and goverment aerospace projects. Our contacts in industry allow us to develop everything from advanced electronics to aircraft and spacecraft. We accomplish this by partnering with other small like minded companies that are highly efficient and responsive to often challenging problems.
