Hudson Space Systems

A "Microgravity" Research Company

Company Information





Hoboken, NJ

Outer space could soon become a $3 trillion industry.

But for this industry to reach its full potential, companies need ways to test their creations and conduct critical research. That’s where Hudson Space Systems offers a solution.

This company focuses on enabling space-related companies to engage in “Microgravity” research. By using a weightless, microgravity environment, companies can better observe, control, and test products and services intended for outer space.

Hudson Space Systems offers its “Microgravity-as-a-Service” through a unique, reusable rocket vehicle. This rocket is packed with customers’ products and equipment and provides three minutes of standard microgravity.

The company built a prototype of this rocket in 2019 and has filed a provisional patent. It is currently undergoing R&D testing and has six Letters of Intent from future customers.
