We engineer solutions that enable the inevitable expansion of humanity beyond Earth. But Ararat Robotics is more than a company, it's a cause, the driving force at the forefront of human advancement in space.
With the total population growing beyond 7 billion, it has become apparent that humanity can not stake its entire survival solely on Earth, especially given the human-caused environmental defects that year after year become more pronounced. At Ararat Robotics, we envision a world where humans live and work on multiple planetary and lunar bodies throughout space, pursuing survival and human advancement. The company was founded to facilitate that pursuit, thereby uniting humankind and promoting the democratization of space.
WHERE WE ARE TODAY
We are studying the moon and innovating ways to mine it. Why? Because recent studies of the moon show that it is the next frontier of human advancement. We have published a white paper detailing why the moon is so significant in preserving human existence and the democratization of space. Find out more here.
Ararat Robotics: Forging a Bright Future in Space Technology
Our journey began on April 5th, 2021, when a group of visionary university students founded Ararat Robotics. With a shared passion for innovation and a desire to ignite the curiosity of aspiring young minds, we set out on a mission to reshape the landscape of space technology.
In a world marked by the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and global conflicts, we saw an opportunity to make a profound impact on the space technology arena. Recognizing that smaller companies, supported by federal government initiatives, could effectively address the industry's growing demands, we took our first step toward the stars.
Ararat Robotics was born not just from entrepreneurial spirit but also from a deep sense of responsibility. We understood that while the present was uncertain, the future held limitless possibilities among the stars. This sense of duty fueled our commitment to establishing a company dedicated to pushing the boundaries of space exploration and innovation.
Over the past three years, Ararat Robotics has achieved remarkable milestones in space technology. A significant highlight has been our close collaboration with NASA through the NPWEE program. In partnership with NASA, we unveiled a groundbreaking method to extract oxygen efficiently from lunar regolith, revolutionizing lunar exploration as we know it.
But our impact extends beyond NASA. Ararat Robotics has also joined forces with the Armenian Engineers and Scientists of America (AESA). Together, we are developing cutting-edge CubeSatellite technology while addressing critical technological needs right in our local community in Armenia. This partnership reflects our unwavering commitment to global space exploration and community enrichment.
In our early days, Starta VC, a startup accelerator and venture fund, provided invaluable guidance and support, helping us define our niche and accelerate our growth trajectory.
Ararat Robotics remains resolute in its mission to pioneer the future of space technology for the betterment of humanity and our planet. As we forge ahead, our dedication to innovation, responsibility, and collaboration continues to drive us towards a future where the boundaries of space expand endlessly, and the possibilities are as boundless as the cosmos itself. Join us on our journey, and together, we'll unlock the mysteries of the universe.
OUR CORE VALUES INFORM ALL OUR DECISIONS
Above all else, Ararat Robotics is a cause for the unity of humankind, for the pursuit of something more robust than self-interest and more flexible than tradition: a shared purpose to shape a better, multi-planetary future for all.
It means expressing one's best ability with a distinct desire to succeed and unbent belief that it is on excellence that our common future is dependent, that it is the only path forward.
A person with integrity demonstrates character, is guided by sound moral and ethical principles, and does the right thing, no matter the circumstance. It is how we build trust.
As we advance in an ever-changing world, we adapt, we implement the most extraordinary ability possessed by humankind as we engineer solutions that respond directly to the needs of our clients when they need it.
It is first of all about the willingness to change in the face of the status quo. It is about the everyday decisions that cause change and ultimately progress to support us in facilitating our mission.
Our work is judged by the people we serve; therefore, our ultimate responsibility is to remain transparent. Being called out when we are wrong is what allows us to develop. We are all about letting the people we serve voice their opinion.
MEET THE TEAM
"Hope inspires people and makes them achieve sometimes impossible victories. Dark forces hate hope, and by all means they try to uproot hope from the hearts of people. When hope is cut off, man turns into a slave of dark forces or the slave of chaos. A hopeless person is like a trapped animal in the hands of his physical, emotional, and mental enemies "
