Kleos aims to revolutionise the Space Manufacturing & Build sector; offering an ecosystem-disruptive In-Space Manufacturing technology. We believe the future of Space will be made there.
Welcome to our FUTRISM technology.
To provide the first, in-orbit method of producing large-scale, carbon composite, 3D structures in space.
To allow the fabrication of in-space structures otherwise difficult to produce on Earth due to limitations at launch.
Eliminating the requirement for high mass and high volume of pre-manufactured structures.
To overcome the increasingly complex and expensive parameters applied to the fabrication of in-space structures.
Current solutions are high in mass and volume whilst having to adhere to specific launch environment requirements.
Testing requirements under both ambient atmospheric and vacuum conditions to ensure materials behave as expected.
The Kleos Solution
Precision robotic technology manufactures 3D space structures using a supply of carbon fibres and resin.
Carbon fibres and resin are processed by pultrusion through a heat forming die, producing cured carbon composite.
Allows the fabrication of in-space structures which would be difficult to produce on Earth due to limitations.
Offering the ability for Space mission engineers, scientists, explorers and entrepreneurs to go beyond convention.
Length limited only by raw material supply.
Excellent mechanical properties (strength to weight).
Simplification of systems, no requirements for HDRMs, Pyros etc.
Manufacturing speed of prototype system is 1mm/s, equating to 1 mile of structure per 18 days.
Cost effective, reduced launch costs, mass for large structures increasing capability of small-sats.
Accurate, reliable, repeatable manufacturing process, closed loop control system with quality monitoring.
Design for application NOT launch (mass, volume, vibration).
