Company Overview

Platform Aerospace is the industry leader in rapid prototyping and aircraft modification through our world-class engineering, design, analysis and fabrication teams. We take your project from the laboratory to fully functional in the aircraft [with Airworthiness Certification] in aggressively quick turnarounds. We are dedicated to excellence and our clients’ mission success. 

To support this mission we have put the best systems and training in place in every aspect of the process. From using state of the art CAD platforms supporting 2D, 3D and solid modeling software double checked with good “old fashioned” hand calculations. We have been certified by INTERTEK for AS9100D / ISO9001-2015 Quality Management System which ensures our projects adhere to the highest standards and are completed exactly as designed. 

Incorporated in 1993, Platform Aerospace [formerly Platform Systems Inc.]  is a service-disabled veteran-owned small business (SDVOSB) dedicated to supporting the warfighter and our customers success.  For the last two decades, Platform Aerospace has specialized in rapid prototyping, bringing requirements from theory to fully-cleared flight operations and sensor testing more quickly than the industry standard.  We possess strong Navy engineering, aircraft maintenance and modification abilities demonstrated by strong past performance in multiple projects. We bring the necessary capability, technical competency and capacity to fulfill your project’s requirements with expertise in engineering, design, analysis, fabrication, installation and flight operations.

Platform Aerospace owns and operates Vanilla Unmanned a World Record setting ultra-long flight endurance Unmanned Air Vehicle ISR platform. We also have expert knowledge and experience in UAV and UAS modification and integration for Tiger Shark, Scan Eagle and Quadcopter Medium Lift UAV systems.

While Platform Aerospace has completed many unique projects over the last 25 years, the design, analysis, build and flight clearance of the NP-3D aircraft has become one of our flagship projects. The modular design of this aircraft allows quick turnaround, installation and integration of multi-sensory suites, decreasing aircraft downtime from months to only days.  Through our experience with the rapid prototyping model, we have expanded this capability to multiple airframes and become a leader in the industry.  We have worked on nearly every airframe in the Navy inventory, as well as ground shelters, ships, vehicles and more.  This expertise has now caused our company to expand into the private aircraft market, taking our high military standards with us as we perform installations on civilian and law enforcement aircraft.  This is why our team has the experience and breadth of knowledge to bring your project, big or small, to a successful completion.
