From whiteboard concept to fielded systems, Draper engineers design, develop and deploy advanced technology solutions for the world’s most difficult and important problems.

More than a thousand engineers and scientists — experts in fields ranging from GN&C to microfabrication — bring a multidisciplinary advantage to system design. The breadth and depth of our expertise enable us to take on almost any challenge.

By building and field-testing working prototypes we accelerate design iterations. We can complete small production runs, license our intellectual property and transition technology for large-volume production. We provide full life-cycle support, including technology refresh.

We provide engineering services directly to government, commercial companies and academia; work on teams as prime contractor or subcontractor; and participate as a collaborator in consortia.

As a not-for-profit, we provide unbiased assessments of technology or systems designed or recommended by other organizations — whether custom-designed or commercial-off-the-shelf.
