Karman Missile & Space Systems, a portfolio company of Trive Capital, has acquired AAE Aerospace, a manufacturer of high temperature composites for the missile, interceptor, and space sectors.

“AAE has an exceptional reputation, team, and market position in composite technologies for missile and space,” said David Stinnet, partner at Trive Capital. “The acquisition of AAE is a significant step forward for Karman, allowing us to deliver more complete subsystems bonding the mating portions of metallic and composite structures. This partnership also adds coveted content positions on the most strategic rocket, missile defense, and hypersonic platforms, while opening up significant cross selling opportunities for Karman.”
