Left Hand Design Corporation (LHDC) is characterized by responsiveness and
flexibility at a reasonable cost.
We are a young company of experienced precision pointing engineers and startup
businessmen. LHDC was formed in 1993 by four people who worked together for
eight to ten years at Ball Aerospace. We developed similar precision pointing
systems and components for aerospace applications. Additional employees and
team members, including the University of Colorado Aerospace and Engineering
Department, provide more than two hundred years of business experience.
LHDC maintains satellite facilities and computer equipment for research, design
and business tasks. Assembly, integration and testing are performed in LHDC's
laboratory and shop in Niwot, Colorado. The Orbital Systems Laboratory at the
University of Colorado is used for additional system performance, analysis and
Design, analysis, assembly, integration and test are performed in-house. We
utilized the University of Colorado's Aerospace Engineering Department and
independent sub-contractors for additional analytical capability. Local
facilities are used for machining, environmental testing and non-critical
optics. A variety of high-quality beryllium, glass, silicon carbide and
aluminum optics are procured from vendors around the world.
We are now making recently developed technology cost-effective for today's
competitive business environment.
