Honeybee Robotics Exploration Systems has been developing space drilling technologies alongside NASA for 2 decades.

Surface Sample Preparation Tools

Honeybee Robotics’ involvement in the space industry was founded on our surface sample preparation tools.

High-Temperature Motors

Honeybee Robotics’ high-temperature actuators and gearheads enable robotic systems in environments up to 460˚C.

Sensor and Payload Deployment Mechanisms

At Honeybee Robotics Exploration Systems, we are unique in our ability to design novel and out-of-the-box mechanisms to solve the most complex problems in a simple, elegant, low cost and low mass way.


Honeybee Robotics Exploration Systems has extensive experience working with scientists to develop instruments for in-situ scientific analysis.

End-To-End Sample Chain

Honeybee Robotics Exploration Systems offers end-to-end solutions for sample collection, handling and delivery for deep space science missions.

LIBSLog Down-Hole System

Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) is a powerful form of atomic emission spectroscopy.

Custom Mechanisms

At Honeybee Robotics we pride ourselves on bringing a breadth and depth of technical expertise to the table in close collaboration with our customers, and we have leveraged this approach to develop various specialized and high-performance subsystems over the years.

Attitude Control Systems

Honeybee Robotics’ Microsat CMG modules are a cutting-edge Attitude Control System (ACS) for small satellites in the 5-150 kg range (e.g. CubeSat to Microsat).

Solar Array Drive Assemblies

For more than a decade, Honeybee Robotics has been leading designer and manufacturer of Solar Array Drive Assemblies (SADA’s).
