Welcome to Dragonfly Aerospace. This is the latest chapter in a proud history of South African space engineering and space missions. Our team has a strong experience and heritage dating back to the first earth observation satellite missions starting in the 1980’s through to our most recent satellite launch in 2018 and imager launch in 2020.
