About the Company

Global Aerospace Corporation (GAC) was founded in 1997 by former NASA/JPL engineers and scientistsas a commercial research and development firm. GAC maintains its corporate office in Irwindale, California, where it develops prototypes and works its projects in a 4,300 sq. ft. R&D office/industrial space. These facilities are used to conduct task engineering work, assembly, integration, and testing of hardware as it is prepared for flight, as well as project meetings and report writing. Our facilities meet Federal, California, and Los Angeles County environmental laws and regulations. Our corporate activities include technical analysis and research, aerospace mission and system concept development, aerospace technology research and development, deep ocean systems research and development, and system design, prototyping, and demonstration. Our corporate team is highly qualified with over 400 years of cumulative aerospace experience.

Focusing Corporate Themes

Our business activities are focused around the following corporate themes:

  • Create new concepts that can accelerate human and robotic exploration and use of space
  • Exploit the use of planetary atmospheres to facilitate orbit lowering, orbit capture, entry, and landing
  • Develop advanced power concepts for terrestrial, planetary and space applications
  • Utilize near-space environment from high stratosphere to low orbit
  • Develop space debris mitigation and remediation devices and processes
  • Deep ocean systems engineering, design, and testing
  • Complex physical systems simulation and modeling
  • Develop guided stratospheric platforms for earth science, communications and national defense
  • Miniaturize sensors instrumentation and monitoring systems to enable new capabilities and concepts
  • Develop autonomous, self-aware, state-driven systems
