Transforming space science through shared cost and global collaboration
Inspire. Build. Explore.
The MILO Institute makes space accessible to all.
A mission academy that supports development of a skilled and capable workforce…
A payload accelerator that guides teams from space-faring nations from concept and payload development to mission operations…
And a mission project office that supports members throughout the entire process.
Affordable access to space science
Space exploration has demonstrated the ability to inspire people to learn, expand the realm of the possible, and make an impact. We offer numerous pathways for teams to participate in compelling space science missions.
Industry and workforce development
We provide workforce development through participation in science missions, spacecraft development, workshops and distance learning. An entrepreneurial framework encourages growth of the space industry.
Our network connects you to universities, government agencies and industry partners around the world.
The MILO Institute is a non-profit research collaborative led by Arizona State University, with support from Lockheed Martin.
Space mission technology
In collaboration with Lockheed Martin, MILO offers a payload accelerator program that matures technology, demonstrates payload prototypes and advances tech for space missions. Services provide emerging space-faring nations with opportunities to be part of new space economy.
MILO manages the mission consortium and provides business services to reduce risk for stakeholders and members. With a mission project office modeled after NASA project offices, members receive support from concept development through payload design to mission operations.
