Making next-generation space capabilities possible.​

We are transforming infrastructure in space with our end-to-end capabilities in space logistics, starting with the proven success of our Mission Extension Vehicle. ​

Now, we are continuing to push the boundary of possible by building an adaptable satellite servicing and logistics architecture with our Mission Robotic Vehicle and Mission Extension Pods.

The future of next-gen space logistics​

Our next-generation satellite servicing vehicles are launching in 2024, but in the coming years, we'll be expanding our capabilities to include GEO active debris removal and in-orbit assembly.​

Leading the way with proven expertise on the MEV mission

Our Mission Extension Vehicle (MEV-1), the first of its kind spacecraft to extend another satellite's life, is now in orbit. MEV is designed to rendezvous and dock with satellites running low on fuel. Watch the video of our latest rescue mission when this innovative spacecraft connected with an Intelsat satellite in need of life support.
