Jeff Brody

Small satellite manufacturing and launch services provider Rocket Lab has agreed to acquire Toronto-based satellite hardware maker Sinclair Interplanetary for an undisclosed sum.

Long Beach, Calif.-based Rocket Lab said Monday it seeks to provide Sinclair access to manufacturing and technology platforms and incorporate the latter company's products into the Photon spacecraft line.

Photon is designed to help customers bring smallsat payloads into medium, geostationary or lunar orbit.

Doug Sinclair, founder and CEO of Sinclair Interplanetary, said the combined entity will aim to increase access to space and availability of satellite hardware to customers worldwide.

Sinclair provided components to more than 90 satellites, which include those launched by Rocket Lab for ALE, AstroDigital and BlackSky.
