All eyes in the space launch and logistics industry are now set on Merida Aerospace following the latest announcement of starting rocket test launches in late 2021. With unique expertise, talent, and resources for spacecraft manufacturing, satellite design, satellite data collection, data distribution, and now, spacecraft launch, the company has stepped into the big game and is ready to go all out. Currently, no other organization offers all these services in one place, which gives Merida Aerospace a unique advantage in the industry.

Over the past years, the team at Merida Aerospace has showcased exemplary projects, including the development of patented satellite communication systems and specialized satellite and rocket communication antennas. The team has also successfully managed satellite earth station projects, from design and development to installation.

With the team's decades of experience in operating manufacturing facilities on an international scale, the team is also well familiar with spacecraft manufacturing. Currently, it is working on next-gen solid fuel for rockets to provide high-value engineering solutions to its clients. The goal is to exponentially reduce costs related to the design, development, manufacturing, and launching processes.

Merida Aerospace team is thoroughly experienced with decades of experience in propulsion systems for rocket and missiles and microwave telemetry systems.

The team has also worked with the United States Department of Defense and has years of experience in maintaining US mil-spec and ISO standards for manufacturing. Having collaborated over several projects, the team is also no stranger to NASA projects.

Now, with the latest announcement regarding rocket test launches in late 2021, things are going to get even more interesting for Merida Aerospace. In a phone interview, Robert Velasco, the chief engineer of Merida Aerospace, revealed that preliminary operations were delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.

However, the company is now ready to take the next big step. "At this point, we are looking to begin work as soon as possible. If everything goes right, we could get started as early as summer of 2021," he said.
