Mars Atmosphere and Volatile EvolutioN
MAVEN has been in Martian orbit since 2014, studying the upper atmosphere and performing data relay for rovers. VSC worked on instrument layout and mechanical design of the Neutral Gas and Ion Mass Spectrometer (NGIMS).
Sample Analysis at Mars
The primary instrument on the Curiosity Rover, SAM has been driven around on the Martian surface since 2012. VSC designed most of the Gas Processing System and worked other mass spectrometer structures.
Neutron star Interior Composition ExploreR
NICER is an array of co-pointing, high-energy telescopes on the ISS, observing black holes, quasars, and other x-ray sources since 2017. VSC personnel designed the overall instrument layout and the novel Deployment and Pointing System (DAPS).
Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer
VSC worked several instruments on this Moon mission that launched in 2013, and impacted the lunar surface in 2014, including mechanical designs for the Neutral Mass Spectrometer and the Aperture Door Mechanism for the Ultraviolet-Visible Spectrometer (UVS).
Balloon-borne Investigation of Temperature and Speed of Electrons in the corona
BITSE is a sun-pointing balloon payload that launched from Ft. Sumner in 2019. VSC designed and integrated the Coronagraph, Aperture Door Mechanism, electronics boxes, and flight harness. We also supported flight operations in New Mexico.
By FOMS - Fiber Optic Manufacturing in Space
This space manufacturing payload will fabricate ultrahigh quality optical fiber in microgravity. Various versions of this payload have flown several times on the ISS. VSC has performed the mission integration function for Space Fibers since 2019.
COronal Diagnostic EXperiment
VSC is working with NASA and Korea Astronomy & Space Science Institute (KASI) scientists and optical engineers to design and build the COronal Diagnostic Experiment instrument, complete with an Aperture Door Mechanism and 2 Filter Wheels. CODEX will launch to the International Space Station in 2023.
WHO WE ARE
We are an experienced engineering team solving complex mechanical problems and delivering innovative spaceflight hardware since 2000. We will work with you to overcome your most difficult design challenges.
Christa Budinoff has over 30 years of experience as a mechanical engineer. Her work spans several Space Shuttle, airborne, and interplanetary instruments.
She received her Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Maryland, College Park.
As a NASA engineer in the 1990’s, Christa conducted structural analysis for LIDAR systems and was the mechanical systems engineer for the SOLSE payload on STS-87. She worked payload integration & contamination control for 7 shuttle missions for the SSBUV program.
In 2000 She founded Visioneering Corp., where she has designed interplanetary instruments and mechanisms for LADEE, MAVEN, ExoMars and the Mars Curiosity rover missions.
Jason Budinoff has 30 years of experience designing and building precision mechanisms and opto-mechanical instrumentation for balloons, aircraft, launch vehicles, and the International Space Station.
He received a Bachelor of Science in Aerospace Engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
His experience includes supporting programs at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and work on several Space Shuttle missions, the Hubble Space Telescope, and the International Space Station.
Recent work includes science instruments for the SOFIA airborne observatory, the BITSE and CODEX coronagraphs, and the NICER ISS X-Ray telescope.
He has also worked with large solid propulsion systems, 3D printing of cubesat-class telescopes, control electronics and telemetry, and instrument systems engineering for ISS external payloads.
