After almost a decade in the aerospace Industry, Walter Ballheimer (co-founder & CEO) and Alexander Genzel (co-founder & COO) teamed up to found Reflex Aerospace, a black-label satellite platform manufacturer. The company is disrupting the industry by offering customers tailor-made, high-performance, and small satellite platforms at a competitive price.
They turned to BatchOne for support to design their very first Earth Observation (EO) satellite concept with a 3D printed biomorphic structural design, deployable solar panels, and electric propulsion. BatchOne supplied the design concept, CAD data & 3D Renderings in alignment with the specified requirements and Reflex Aerospace’s brand values.
The design concept, including the provided renderings, were used for their pitch deck and PR material to convince investors. Successfully, Reflex Aerospace raised €7 million in a seed financing round in December 2022 (Welt, 2022).
