RUAG Space rebrands to Beyond Gravity
May 1, 2022
As of May 1, 2022, RUAG Space, Zürich, Switzerland, has legally changed its name to Beyond Gravity, the name under which the company has been operating since March 15, 2022.
With around 1,600 employees and sales of 319 million Swiss francs in 2021, Beyond Gravity develops and manufactures products for satellites and launch vehicles and operates in six countries (Switzerland, Sweden, Austria, Germany, Finland and the USA).
Beyond Gravity is a supplier of structures for all types of launch vehicles. It is reported that European Ariane and Vega rockets, and many US United Launch Alliance rockets, are equipped with Beyond Gravity payload fairings.
The company uses Additive Manufacturing for the development and production of a number of components and, in 2019, additively manufactured an engine mount for the Beresheet lunar lander designed by SpaceIL. The company is also known for its work in selected satellite products, particularly for satellite constellations in the New Space market.
All existing contracts and offers will remain valid despite the rebrand, as the company ownership (100% Swiss Confederation) has not made any changes
