Aevum is a company that is working to provide space logistics for small payloads, and is interested in reducing logistical costs to providing technology and communication services around the globe. The company was founded by Jay Skylus, in Alabama, United States, in 2016 as a result of communication issues with troops in Afghanistan in 2005.

Since 2005, Aevum has conducted rocket research, internal combustion dynamics research, developed the Ravn launch vehicle concepts, provided virtual demonstrations of launching a constellation of 30 small satellites in a circular orbit, began prototyping the Ravn vehicle, demonstrated autonomous taxi/flight software, developed launch operations and launch site, and eventually won a $986 million contract for launch services.

The Ravn is designed to launch a fleet of tiny satellites into space to build a constellation. The vehicle will be able to launch every three hours, and will operate like a commercial aircraft. The aircraft will be autonomous through the steps of taxi from the hanger, takeoff, launch, landing, and taxi return to the hanger, and will require a ground team of six people.

Aevum believes its Ravn X drone which is said to be the world's biggest drone, is now capable of sending low-Earth orbit satellites into space, and it will cost less than it takes companies like Elon Musk's SpaceX to do so.
