Aerospace deployable antenna provider Tendeg LLC is pleased to announce it has been selected by Lockheed Martin as a strategic supplier for several of the company's critical global security space missions.

Tendeg is an innovative manufacturer of spacecraft antennas and deployable structures with full-range aerospace engineering services, including design, analysis, prototyping and flight unit build. The company's antennas are scalable to support missions requiring apertures that deploy from .5 meters to further than 16 meters.

Tendeg is supporting several orders with Lockheed Martin being delivered as early as this year. The two firms are also in discussions regarding how Tendeg's unique designs could further serve our nation's important space missions when combined with the Lockheed Martin's versatile radio frequency (RF) payloads. These designs promise to enable the revolutionary path to larger apertures increasing spectral access and mission capability, in all orbital regimes.

"The scalability of our deployable antennas provide a wide range of mission options, and their affordability helps contribute to the low life-cycle cost goals of many government missions," said Gregg Freebury, CEO and Principal Engineer at Tendeg. "We're 'right down the road' from Lockheed Martin here in Colorado and we're excited to be able to work closely with them on efforts to support those protecting our country."
