Our Consulting Mission

AMPT understands that the layout and design of test stand hardware, instrumentation, and supporting systems are crucial to performing efficient testing with accurate and relevant results.

We apply our extensive experience and innovative attitude in system development, with safety and operational efficiency as benchmarks in all projects.

Our Facility Consulting Services

AMPT’s Consulting Services include conceptual and detail design, procurement and fabrication, and installation of test systems at customer sites.

Our team has experience in designing and deploying state of the art propellant feed systems and close-coupled data acquisition systems. We can provide customized data acquisition and control software for system analysis and control, including highly functional Graphical User Interfaces.


AMPT provides test services at our headquarters in Durango, CO and our secondary site in Mojave, CA. AMPT hardware and infrastructure is fully mobile, allowing us to provide full testing services at any location in the continental US, providing an alternative to shipping hazardous propellants and engine systems.


Although AMPT is not located in a major metro area, the prevalence of the oil and gas industry lays substantial infrastructure to allow AMPT to remain agile. AMPT has access to local companies that specialize in propellant handling, nitrogen and other consumables, and other industrial supplies.

Holt Sheet Metal, an AMPT business partner, is a local machine shop with world class capability, including a large five axis mill, CNC mill, and water jet table. Having a Durango based machine shop also allows AMPT to have parts fabricated and delivered same day or next day for high flexibility and response time to customer needs.


AMPT strives to continuously improve our capability and engineering services. We are always excited to tackle new engineering problems and are proud to provide custom solutions for customers. If you have an engineering project that doesn’t fit within the capabilities listed above, please contact us to discuss your needs. We may be able to offer consulting, design services, or expand our capability to meet your needs.

We'd love to hear from you.
