Who We Are

Our story and values

Our Story

At Relative Dynamics, we value knowledge as a process rather than knowledge as an answer. Founded in 2011, our goal is to define the new space era by continuously pushing the boundaries of engineering models, services and technology development.  

Our idea is seemingly simple, and we focus on the "first principles" approach. We have mastered the art of getting the right people, putting them in situations where their abilities shine, and providing them with the freedom to think and innovate.  The result of this is no surprise!  This approach has led to our customers getting a level of service and solutions beyond their expectations.
