Case study - NASA
Pinnacle were responsible for delivering vital and quite literally priceless components of the James Webb Space Telescope, working closely with NASA in association with the University of Leicester’s Space Research Center (SRC) and the European Space Agency (ESA). This huge project was almost 15 years in development and involved end-to-end supervision of a very sensitive object with skilled handling in the UK and USA.
We were required to manage the temperature-controlled air cargo container, priority airside access, roller bed systems, air cargo security exemptions, and the building of bespoke air cargo slave pallets.
“Delivery to NASA of the MIRI instrument for the James Webb Space Telescope was the highest value shipment that we have ever been responsible for in 50 years of space research and the most difficult from a logistical point of view. Pinnacle were instrumental throughout the planning, organization, and ultimately the highly successful implementation of the delivery plan. We look forward to working with them again on any similar future projects.”
