About Draper


Draper is able to deliver working solutions to our sponsors, in part because of our in-house facilities for design, simulation, prototype, fabrication, and testing. By keeping all components of our engineering development in Draper, we are able to offer high value complete solutions even if our sponsors require small to moderate quantities of the finished solution. 

Examples of in-house facilities:

  • Analytical Chemistry Laboratory
  • Autonomous Vehicles Laboratory
  • Biosensor Laboratory
  • BL2 Biology Laboratory
  • Classified Facilities
  • Inertial Instrument/Systems Test Facilities
  • Information Technology and Computer-Aided Design
  • Machine Shop
  • Mechanical Prototyping Shop
  • Microelectromechanical System (MEMS) Fabrication
    • MEMS Packaging
    • Electronics Design and Test
  • Microfabrication Laboratory
  • Microfluidics Laboratory
  • Multichip Module (MCM) Fabrication Laboratory
  • Polymer Laboratory
  • Rapid Prototyping Lab
  • Simulation Laboratory
