Asteroid Initiatives, LLC,was founded to unlock the economic potential of deep space through asteroid exploration and economic development.

Asteroid Initiatives has developed Pixie femtospacecraft, currently under consideration as a candidate for the CubeSat Opportunity Payloads (COPINS) of the ESA Asteroid Impact Mission. In this technology demonstration, a swarm of 40 Pixie femtospacecraft would be deployed to blanket the moon of the binary asteroid (65803) Didymos with a wide variety of sensors as part of the AIDA (Asteroid Impact & Deflection Assessment) asteroid defense test being jointly considered by ESA and NASA.

This technology will be an essential part of asteroid prospecting and mining, giving Asteroid Initiatives a lead in the commercial exploitation of space resources.
