WASHINGTON — Voyager Space announced Oct. 4 that it had acquired Valley Tech Systems. This company developed solid-fueled propulsion for long-range missiles, as well as signal processing and geolocation technologies for the U.S.

This is the latest in a series of acquisitions by Denver-based Voyager, founded in 2019 with the goal of becoming a vertically integrated space exploration company.

Voyager said in a statement that the acquisition of Valley Tech Systems, based in Folsom, California, adds important technologies to the company’s portfolio.

Dylan Taylor, CEO of Voyager Space, said Valley Tech’s controllable solid propulsion and signals-intelligence technologies “can help to solve key pain points for space missions and create a safer and more affordable space ecosystem.”

Valley Tech holds multiple Small Business Innovation Research contracts from the Missile Defense Agency, NASA, the U.S. Air Force, and the U.S. Army for reaction control systems, next-generation propulsion and active thruster nozzles.

The company is developing a solid-propulsion subsystem for Lockheed Martin’s Next Generation Interceptor missile for the Missile Defense Agency. Valley Tech will supply a booster rocket control subsystem that helps stabilize the NGI missile’s flight path.

Unlike conventional solid systems that do not regulate ballistic thrust performance, controllable solid propulsion technology provides more precision and long-duration approaching those of liquid propellant systems, according to a Valley Tech news release.

On the signals intelligence side, Valley Tech’s signal processing and geolocation tools, and data analytics are used by the U.S. military. The company stated that its signals intelligence systems allow customers to transform signal data into intelligence information.
