Technical Capabilities

Honeybee Robotics builds products that work flawlessly in the most demanding applications. We have provided flight hardware to NASA for over two decades. We take pride in developing efficient, tightly integrated systems, often on accelerated schedules to meet mission-critical milestones.

To enable our product development, build-to-print manufacturing, and design consulting services, we have amassed a unique combination of flight development and production capabilities as outlined below.

  • Specification development & interface definition
  • Requirements flow-down & traceability analysis
  • Configuration management & design control
  • Engineering cost, schedule & risk analysis

  • Solid modeling & 3D design
  • Static, dynamic & thermal FEA
  • Mechanical event simulation
  • Fault-tree & preventative action analysis
  • Functional, life & operational testing
  • Integration of electrical components & subsystems

  • Flight twist capsule & slip ring design
  • Analog & digital PCB design & layout
  • Conventional & flex print cable harness design
  • Electrical ground support equipment (GSE) design

  • Algorithm development & GSE emulation
