Amsterdam, The Netherlands (SPX) Oct 12, 2012
Andrews Space has signed an agreement with ISIS of the Netherlands to begin manufacturing a US version of the ISIPOD, branded the EZPOD, in the United States.
Under the terms of the agreement, Andrews will manufacture and integrate the EZPODs domestically with initial units available as early as January 2013.
"Until now the United States only had a single CubeSat dispenser solution available. The ISIS ISIPOD product is reliable, proven and lower-cost than similar products on the market and now it's available in the United States, under the brand name EZPOD, as a domestically manufactured solution," said Jason Andrews, President and CEO of Andrews Space.
"The EZPOD gives our customers a highly competitive alternative to the status quo."
Abe Bonnema, Marketing Director of ISIS, said "Our agreement with Andrews Space extends our dispenser product line into the United States, satisfying the need for US customers to have a domestically produced product, manufactured by a company that meets ISIS' high standards for quality and workmanship."
Jason Andrews adds "We will continue to expand our partnership with ISIS to manufacture 6U and 12U EZPOD dispensers for larger CubeSats as well. Both structures and dispensers for these sizes will be available during the first half of 2013".
All Andrews products and components are built domestically using Andrews' AS9100C certified quality procedures for spaceflight hardware.
