Our SOcial Mission
Aevum Inc. was founded to democratize the access to space and directly enable space-based assets that can connect the other half of the world that currently do not have access to the internet. We believe that the right technologies deployed in space can help make the world better and transcend the unity of humankind.
What FedEx did for package delivery Aevum is doing for space access. When a business sends a parcel with FedEx they don t want to have to worry about the minute details of how it gets to its destination. The only considerations should be simplicity reliability speed and cost. The same should be true for sending a payload to space. With Aevum it is. Our team has created an end to end solution for government and commercial customers to deploy payloads to low Earth orbit. Unlike other solutions Aevum provides not just the ride to space but all the ancillary services and infrastructure required to get a payload to a specific orbit reliably on schedule and in a cost effective manner.
