About Us

Stratosphere is a company focused in the development of solutions and products for  critical applications of systems and structures. We are specialists on the development and deployment of advanced Cyberphysical systems

Stratosphere builds upon the legacy of Critical Materials. A Start-up kicked-off operations in 2009 based on a joint vision of Critical Group and two researchers from the University of Minho / PIEP. Critical Group provided go-to-market support while the two individual founders contributed with a large experience in advanced critical applications of materials and structures

During 2019 an MBO leaded by the founders of the company transformed Critical Materials S.A into Stratosphere S.A. The company maintains the same disruptive  DNA and redefines its focus to become a leading Global Provider of Advanced Cyberphysical Systems

The founders have 15+ years experience in research and development in the field of structural analysis, advanced materials development and critical systems with applications in wide range of industries: aeronautics, space, automotive, energy and manufacturing. They have reference work with Boeing, Airbus, Lockheed Martin, ESA, EDP, among others. The integration of a group of top researchers and engineers with varied experience in academic and industrial environments created a team highly skilled in providing integrated health & monitoring solutions to current and future challenges in our focus industries: Aeronautics, Space, Defence, Energy and Smart Cities & Infrastructures.

Stratosphere strategy is sustained by our vision, values and uniqueness in the fulfilment of our mission.
