JWST: JAMES WEBB SPACE TELESCOPE

We collaborated with our government customer to provide timely technical solutions that met budget, schedule, and quality requirements for critical JWST hardware.

RST: NANCY GRACE ROMANSPACE TELESCOPE

An accurate, full-scale interactive model of RST (formerly WFIRST) to provide an immersive experience for numerous VIP delegations of congressional representatives, government budget authorities, and international dignitaries.

JALS: JAMES WEBB SPACE TELESCOPE ADJUSTABLE LIFT SLING

Newton designed and delivered a highly functional adjustable lift sling for JWST with a custom-designed shipping container within a time-sensitive frame for thermal vacuum testing.

CAESAR: COMET ASTROBIOLOGY EXPLORATION SAMPLE RETURN

In collaboration with GSFC and Cornell University, Newton provided engineering support services to assist in a concept design and proposal that resulted in CAESAR’s selection as one of two NASA New Frontiers finalists.

GEDI: GLOBAL ECOSYSTEM DYNAMICS INVESTIGATION

With an optimized budget, Newton built a functional model of BAM. This model demonstrated the mechanism's design maturity and capabilities to achieve necessary resources for remaining development.

SWESARR: SNOW WATER EQUIVALENT SYNTHETIC APERTURE RADAR AND RADIOMETER

In collaboration with GSFC, Newton provided end-to-end product development of a new aircraft instrument structure and stabilization platform for the Snow Water Equivalent SAR and Radiometer (SWESARR) mission...

GAToR: GROUND SUPPORT EQUIPMENT APPLICATION FOR TILT OR ROTATION

IIn collaboration with GSFC, Newton developed the Ground Support Equipment (GSE) Application for Tilt or Rotation (GAToR), a high precision pointing mechanism used in the testing and calibration of the Ocean Color Instrument (OCI)...

MARLI: MARS LIDAR FOR GLOBAL WIND AND AEROSOL PROFILES FROM ORBIT

In collaboration with GSFC, Newton provided end-to-end product development of a robust opto-mechanical solution for MARLI’s edge filter and diffractive optical element (EF-DOE) that demonstrated its capabilities...

LEISA: LINEAR ETALONIMAGING SPECTRAL ARRAY

In collaboration with GSFC, Newton provided full product development services to repackage LEISA in a new, thermally-stable cryogenic detector subsystem for robust performance and expanded capabilities in the Lucy mission.

HIRMES: HIGH-RESOLUTION MID-INFRARED SPECTROMETER FOR THE EVOLUTION OF PROTOPLANETARY DISKS

In collaboration with GSFC, Newton provided complete product development of HIRMES’ cryostat and optical bench mechanisms that demonstrated its capabilities and mature technology from SOFIA...
