We build reliable platforms for missions that host a variety of communication instruments and payloads.
Our SN-100 spacecraft platform provided the basis for the ORBCOMM Generation 2 (OG2) low-Earth orbit (LEO) constellation of asset-tracking, machine-to-machine (M2M) communication satellites, providing 12 times performance increase over the first generation. We built, tested and delivered 18 OG2 satellites, including the procurement and integration of a sophisticated software-defined radio communication payload.
We also developed a platform for specialized communications in geosynchronous orbit (GEO). This small GEO spacecraft can test new communications technologies or provide operators with an agile platform to ensure efficient orbital slot utilization. These satellites are fabricated in our dedicated, high-throughput spacecraft production environment at our Louisville, Colorado facility.
