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

We provide mechanical system engineering support from idea conception to coordination of part fabrication and assembly processing.  We provide 3D mechanical part and assembly design using ProEngineer.   We offer model, static and random finite element analysis of mechanical parts and subsystems using Nastran.  Our primary customer has been the aerospace community where requirements can be extremely challenging.  The challenges have ranged from  developing gas processing systems that heat samples to 800 C to subsystems that must survive 100G accelerations. Give us an opportunity to help you with your next challenge!

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.

Past Projects:

Mars Science Lab (MSL):  AMU Engineering supported the Sample Analysis at Mars (SAM) team providing the mechanical engineering designs 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/
