We are dedicated to advancing science and engineering through forward-leaning solutions and services, executed professionally and efficiently.
Since 1991, our national and international collaborations with U.S., European, Japanese, and Korean satellite programs have advanced weather observing around the world. Carr Astronautics Corporation provides superior service in the fields of science, engineering, IT and technical support to worldwide government, industry, and academic clients.
Carr’s highly specified workforce includes experts in key domains: spacecraft physics, mathematics, meteorology, software engineering, and science data processing and product design.
We have built a reputation for developing real-time science processing algorithms (SPA), revolutionizing Image Navigation and Registration (including geo-referencing/geo-registration & ortho-rectification), designing and implementing innovative and very cost effective direct readout/broadcast solutions, and “operationalizing science” for the I-M, NOP and R series of the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES), ESA/EUMETSAT’s METEOSAT, and the Korean and Japanese weather satellite programs. Our systems literally span the globe.
Beyond our achievements in space, our remote sensing aerial imagery services contribute to healthier farm products, reduction in fertilizer run off and reduced operations costs for American farmers. The very high resolution imagery and data products are valuable to the farming, forestry and insurance industries. Our cloud-based data processing and archiving services puts valuable data into the hands of the USDA, crop consultants, and scientists researching the impact of global warming.
As a Small Business within SBA's <$25 Million standard, Carr Astronautics has performed as both a federal Prime Contractor (NOAA, DoD) and a valuable teammate to large aerospace companies such as Harris, Boeing, Ball Aerospace, Mitsubishi Electric, and Thales-Alenia Space. The company is headquartered in Greenbelt, Maryland, with additional work locations in Lanham, MD and Europe.
