Who We Are

Our story and values

Our Story

Founded in 2011, Relative Dynamics sought to be a think-tank that provides focused and highly technical solutions in our core competencies of Communications and Astrodynamics. We began by providing key insights and technical expertise with our experience from the Space Shuttle Program.

However, we have grown and become capable of doing so much more. As the world was turning a new page in the history of space innovation, we planted our foundations to serve this new era of advanced space technologies supporting the necessary functions of civil, commercial and military customers in both the public and private sectors.
