Aerospace as you may know is the business of flying in and around the atmosphere of our planet Earth, as well as the space surrounding Earth’s atmosphere. It involves commercial flying, satellites, spacecraft, and many more. There are many aerospace organizations dedicated to the research, development, manufacturing, and operation of aeronautic deployments. There are also many companies out there that are dedicated to creating materials that help aerospace take place, such as the composite materials solvay creates, and other companies that create composite materials.

The International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and Export Administration Regulations (EAR) control several areas affecting the aerospace industry, including:

  • Commercial Communications Satellites
  • Commercial Remote Sensing Satellites
  • Launch Services
  • Maintenance, Repair, & Overhaul (MRO)
  • Satellite Components
  • Satellite Imaging
  • Defense and military related technologies (ITAR only)

We help guide our clients through all the various U.S. regulations set by these two bodies as well as any other body that affects commercial and defense-related aerospace products. This is so that our clients can design their areospace technologies in compliance with regulations as well as help them choose the aerospace components manufacturers that suits their needs. We also provide guidance and administrative support for foreign regulations, including in the key growth markets of Europe, Japan, India, China, and Russia. With our guidance, any foray into the area of aerospace done by our clients should be fully compliant with national and international law.
