• MAKING SENSE IN SPACE

    Through agile physics and cutting-edge technology, we create sustainable and scalable solutions for sensing capabilities in space. Together with our subsidiaries, Geost, Trident and Ophir, we are shaping the future of space.

  • TRUSTED

    Our solutions have 100% on orbit mission success and are trusted by the Intelligence Community, DoD, and partner nations for their most critical missions.

  • PURPOSE-BUILT

    Our advantage lies in our unmatched expertise in understanding and harnessing the physics of light, enabling us to identify and characterize objects day and night across vast distances — from Earth to cislunar — and through difficult atmospherics. Our partners turn to us for our world-class physicists and collaborative approach when they need innovative solutions to address their most challenging missions.

  • CUTTING EDGE

    LightRidge is able to develop the onboard algorithms, firmware, and hardware necessary to advance artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML) edge computing in space.

  • AFFORDABLE

    Our low size, weight and power (SWaP), high-performance solutions, coupled with our multi-orbit and multi-mission capabilities, enable LightRidge to offer competitively priced, affordable solutions that meet or exceed mission requirements.
