CREATING THE
FUTURE OF
EXPLORATION

WE DESIGN AND BUILD COMPLEX SYSTEMS

for spaceflight & scientific research

We offer a full range of mechanical, electro-mechanical and opto-mechanical engineering services. Visioneering is your partner from proposal development through flight hardware delivery and instrument integration.

Through our network of expert partners we can provide optical, mechanical, and thermal analysis services.

Our team will turn your ideas into reality.

 

WHO WE ARE

We are expert spaceflight engineers, and have been providing design support services to NASA since 2000.

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.
