Who is Firefly Space Systems?

Firefly is a start-up that operates in a small niche of the aerospace industry called “NewSpace”. The company was founded in 2014 by Dr. Tom Markusic, Michael Blum (CFO), and P.J. King. Tom Markusic, Chief Executive Officer of FireFly, is regarded as one of the world’s leading propulsion and aerospace engineers. His mission is to revolutionize how humans get to space, improve how data is shared through space, and shift the economics to open up endless possibilities in NewSpace innovation.

How Does KETIV Help Reach These Goals?

For the past few years, KETIV has worked with Firefly to implement the very best software for accomplishing their goals and objectives. Currently, Firefly is performing CAD and mechanical designs through Autodesk’s Product Design Collection. This software provides the tools to quickly and collectively perfect their rocket designs – ultimately moving the design and production process forward, nearing inevitable space flight.

Markusic attributes a portion of Firefly’s success to Autodesk and KETIV. While announcing that Firefly will join Autodesk Cleantech Partner Program (a program allowing the company to advance the next-generation of cleaner-building rockets), Markusic said KETIV’s services have been “incredibly supportive in getting us up and running quickly.”
