L3Harris' Bill Gattle says the DoD space market is changing in fundamental ways
SpaceX will outsource the sensor payload for a missile-tracking satellite SDA says will be based on the company's Starlink design.
The contract is to upgrade and expand the Ground-based Electro-Optical Deep Space Surveillance System that track objects in geostationary orbits.
The 1,250-kilogram NTS-3 satellite is being built by L3Harris under an $84 million contract from the Air Force Research Laboratory.
Manufacturers agreed the cost of cubesats and small satellites of all sizes will decline as constellation developers and operators begin placing larger orders.
As small satellites become more powerful, manufacturers say they need better ways to manage excess heat generated by their electronics systems.
The Air Force said the Navigation Technology Satellite-3 has passed a critical design review.
L3Harris has launched the first satellite of a remote sensing constellation.
L3Harris Technologies won four National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration contracts worth a combined $2.55 million for design studies of weather satellites, instruments and mission concepts.
Ball Aerospace won four National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration contracts worth a combined $2.32 million for weather satellite and instrument design studies.
The Wide Field of View satellite is scheduled to launch in August 2021.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration awarded eight contracts with a combined total of nearly $4.5 million to companies developing mission concepts, spacecraft and instruments for the agency’s future Earth observation constellation.
The contracts are to develop and produce Protected Tactical Waveform-capable modems
L3Harris Technologies has redesigned its patented unfurlable mesh reflector antenna to meet growing demand from firms building satellites weighing roughly 180 to 1,000 kilograms.
