• Pioneer Astronautics

    A hands-on research and development company dedicated to inventing and proving new technologies to advance humanity’s reach into space and to improve life on Earth.

Do you have an invention or new chemical process that you would like developed?

Pioneer Astronautics has a fully equipped lab and a highly qualified technical staff.

If you would like someone to build, test, or demonstrate your invention, we can do it for you.

Instead of spending a fortune to build your own research organization, hire us!

If your invention can be made to work, we’ll make it work.

Since our founding in January 1996, Pioneer’s innovative team has proven successful in demonstrating a series of dramatic innovations that have the potential to open up radical new capabilities for space exploration systems.
