Architecture on Earth plays a critical role in the way we live. On Mars, this role reaches a higher level of importance since architectures are machines which keep us alive. In space architecture, every design decision is of great consequence to the success of a mission. Structures must be resilient and interior layouts must function around mission demands. But since sustained social and mental health is also mission-critical, space habitats should offer an element of humanity. The result is a credible and evocative habitat with an alien yet familiar beauty.

Aurora Flight Sciences is a leader in the development and manufacturing of advanced unmanned systems and aerospace vehicles.
Aurora is not your typical aerospace company. Yes, we make drones, but at the core of our company’s DNA is a commitment to the science of autonomous flight, whether that means a fully autonomous drone or a program that is breaking new ground in the interface between man and machine as relates to flight. And our work is not tied to one type of customer – our customers range from Silicon Valley tech companies, to the U.S. military, to world leaders in air cargo transport. And, not surprisingly, other aerospace companies come to Aurora to seek our help building their aircraft.
We’ve been in business for over 25 years, we’re a seasoned veteran, but when it comes to pursuing the next big aerospace innovation, we look more like the visionary startup company than ‘old veteran.’ Our company is big enough to be a tier one player on the most exciting unmanned programs in the world, but small and nimble enough to have earned the reputation as the company that is constantly bringing forward the disruptive, ground breaking new technology in unmanned flight.
We are headquartered in Manassas, VA and operate production plants in Bridgeport, WV and Columbus, MS. Aurora also has a Research and Development Center in Cambridge, MA, and a recently opened office in Mountain View, CA.
