MAX Flight Software

Modular, autonomous, extendible flight software

The MAX Tool Suite includes MAX Flight Software, ODySSy, Sequencer,
and the DevTool. These tools provide an out-of-the-box solution to
meet the demands of modern space endeavors.

Mature and

Off-the-shelf flight software that supports a
wide range of missions and all spacecraft
subsystems including command and
telemetry, sequencing, GNC, fault protection,
built-in closed loop simulation, and more.


Targeted and adapted to a wide variety of
spacecraft designs, payloads, mission
requirements, and hardware architectures.
Our MAX DevTool with auto-code generation
enables timelines from program start to
launch measured in months.

Cost Effective

More than any other spacecraft subsystem, MAX
Flight Software has the unique ability to enable rapid
program-wide progress while significantly reducing
costs. MAX’s digital mission engineering framework
allows programs to accelerate their timelines by
starting with a feature rich software foundation.


With over a century in space and 50+ successful
missions, MAX reduces risk and increases
responsiveness. Proven on a wide variety of
missions including government programs,
interplanetary spacecraft, and rapidly developed
commercial constellations

Tool Suite

MAX FSW incorporates ODySSy (On-Board Dynamic Simulation System), a unique built-in test capability with high-fidelity full mission modeling, enabling rapid spacecraft development.

With DevTool, easily build custom components and algorithms within MAX FSW. DevTool auto-codes the majority of FSW for new components using an intelligent XML schema.

Powerful sequence engine and scripting language provides operational flexibility, automation, and CONOPS development. Sequencer supports configurable fault detection, isolation, and recovery.
