In addition, we have expanded our staff to support new and upcoming programs! Read below for more!

OAI Facility Expansion

As announced in January, OAI purchased and began renovations on a new office/Flex-warehouse space in Highlands Ranch, CO. Our new facility is planned for occupancy later this summer and will be a great addition to OAI capabilities. With expanded laboratory spaces, technical development areas, and multiple meeting spaces, OAI's new facility will be a great addition for our business, partners, and customers.

ACORN Product Upgrades & Improvements

Oakman Aerospace, Inc. (OAI) is excited to announce upgrades and improvements to our ACORN product line. Using pre-programmed flight scenarios, hardware-in-the-loop and software based spacecraft modeling and simulation, ACORN is designed to take missions from pre-milestone to flight readiness review. Our newest upgrades and improvements will take ACORN to new levels and customers. For more details and the big reveal come see us at the Small Satellite Conference at booth #13!

Colorado Aerospace STEM Magazine

STEM education and outreach is very important to us at OAI, because we believe it is important to invest in developing the necessary skills of our society's youth in order to maintain a healthy aerospace workforce like the one that currently exists here in Colorado. We hope that for many years to come, our home state continues to play a large role in contributing to STEM education. To aid in this effort, we have worked with the Colorado Space Business Roundtable and Wayne Carley of STEM Magazine to help put together the Colorado Aerospace STEM Magazine. This FREE e-magazine is a pertinent resource for all CO students, teachers, and parents interested in STEM.

If you are interested in advertising space or wish to be added to the distribution list, please contact Ashley Meyer at It's a great way to stay connected and/or contribute to STEM outreach in Colorado!
