The roots of Triton Systems stem from several individual consulting operations begun in the Houston area in the mid-1990s. Triton Systems, LLC  incorporated in the state of Texas in July 2004.  In August 2005, Triton Systems opened its Houston office a few miles from the Johnson Space Center.  Our team consists of aerospace specialists in flight mechanics, trajectory optimization, computer software, aerodynamics and other related disciplines.  Additionally,  we have forged informal cooperative links with many other local  concerns and specialists in related fields across the country.

A majority veteran-owned firm, Triton's president and chairman, Wes Kelly is an air force veteran and aerospace engineer of three decades experience in industry. Following service with USAF, Mr. Kelly received a BS in Aerospace Engineering from the Univ. of Michigan in 1973, an MS in Aeronautics and Astronautics from the Univ. of Washington in 1978, doing additional graduate studies in astrophysics  . A member of the American Astronautical Society and a Fellow of the British Interplanetary Society, Mr. Kelly is the author of 19 papers in proceedings and technical journals.

In recent years the Stellar-J launch vehicle has been described in several public forums.  As an invited speaker Wes Kelly provided accounts of Stellar J progress at the 2003 and 2005 Space Access Society meetings in Phoenix as well as to the Bay Area Houston Economic Partnership (BAHEP) in Clear Lake City on September 21st, 2004.  The AIAA  Houston bi-monthly  publication Horizons (2005 Sept/Oct) 1 included "The Stellar-J Launch Vehicle" as a feature and cover article along with editorial comment.
