A thriving economy in space is needed to make life on earth more vibrant, sustainable, and equitable. STOKE was founded to build the systems that enable that outcome through a seamlessly connected earth and space.


Reusable systems are the key to seamlessly connecting Earth and space. A key ingredient to making reusable systems is the ability to manufacture high quality parts and embrace quick iteration.
