Use the vantage point of space.

We have developed a standardized satellite platform that can be configured to fly any customer mission. With our own hardware and software abstraction layers on top of a commodity satellite bus, our platform is truly turnkey and plug-and-play.

Loft offers our customers unbeatable speed-to-orbit by removing the non-recurring engineering that is the root cause of schedule unpredictability and cost overruns. We bypass typical aerospace lead times by maintaining an inventory of fully assembled satellite platform at our Integration and Test facility in Golden, CO. 

Loft handles all elements of the process of deploying and operating space infrastructure on the customer’s behalf, so that customers can focus their time and resources entirely on their mission.

Mission-agnostic infrastructure

We fly any payload that fits within any standard satellite platform. Many customers also deploy virtual, or software-only, missions directly to our satellites to process and analyze data to support near-real time decision making.

Diverse customer base

We partner with organizations across the space economy:
from commercial space startups, to established aerospace and defense primes, to cloud and AI companies, to government agencies all over the world.

Global presence

We have a diverse and international team from all over the world. We operate in three locations:
San Francisco, California
Golden, Colorado
Toulouse, France

Why Loft?

Speed to orbit

Our core values

Wear the customer’s shoes

We feel the weight of the trust that our customers place in us and commit to always doing right by them, with transparency and responsiveness.

Have each other’s backs

We look out for each other and have a deeply collaborative work environment. Professionalism, respect and kindness for each-other are non-negotiable at Loft.

A beginner's mind

We don’t just accept the status quo – we seek truth and aim to bring the best of traditional and new space to Loft.

High standards

We take pride in what we ship, because we know there is little margin for error in space.

Work with a team that is changing how the world gets to space.
