Our primary customer is the aerospace community.

AMU Engineering, Inc. was established in 2002 and is a woman-owned company located in Miami, Florida.

We have provided mechanical system engineering support for a number of spaceflight missions, including:

  • Mars Science Lab (MSL),
  • Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE),
  • Mars Atmospheric and Volatile Evolution Mission (MAVEN),
  • Mars Organic Molecule Analyzer (MOMA).

Mission Statement:

AMU Engineering is focused on providing high quality mechanical engineering support to the aerospace community.  We selectively partner with only the highest, most experienced small companies to deliver this support.  We keep our costs fair and adhere to strict principles of integrity in providing our services. We strive hard to maintain healthy customer relationships.

Projects we are members of include:

MSL: AMU Engineering was a member of the Sample Analysis at Mars (SAM) team providing mechanical engineering support of the Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer and the Gas Processing System which is part of the Chemical Separation and Processing Lab. MSL launched on November 26, 2011 and landed safely on Mars on August 6, 2012.

What is SAM?

“Sample Analysis at Mars will search for compounds of the element carbon, including methane, that are associated with life and explore ways in which they are generated and destroyed in the martian ecosphere.” Read more about SAM by visiting: http://marsprogram.jpl.nasa.gov/msl/

LADEE: AMU Engineering is a member of the Neutral Mass Spectrometer (NMS) team providing mechanical system engineering support, including design and analysis, of the Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer, RF module, Detector Electronics Module, Main Electronics Box and the NMS mechanical support structure. LADEE is scheduled to launch in the spring of 2013.
