Electronics Technician

Location: Broomfield, CO 80020

 

Introduction

Altius is a subsidiary of Voyager Space and our vision is to enable a future where thousands of people live and work in space, tapping the resources of our solar system for the benefit of humanity. As part of the effort to make that vision become reality, Altius is currently developing modular interfaces for satellite servicing, dust tolerant tool changers for planetary and harsh environment robotics and docking and refueling systems for space tugs and human lunar landers.

A key ingredient in all these systems is Altius’ electro permanent magnet (EPM) technology, which uses high-power pulsed electronics to reprogram permanent magnet arrays, creating a solid-state switchable magnet that combines the no-power hold capabilities of permanent magnet arrays with the rapid control of electromagnetic systems.

We are continuously seeking talented and dynamic individuals to join our team and help us achieve our vision of reliable solid-state Space interfaces.
