Next Generation On-Orbit Satellite Servicing and Refueling Programmes

Wednesday 27 September 2017, 17:45 – 18:45
Location: Adelaide Convention Center – Hall C

Satellite servicing is creating a paradigm-shift in the space industry and could potentially transform in-orbit architectures. It changes the economics of satellite fleet management by providing commercial satellite operators and government agencies with more flexibility in the timing of replacement satellites and will enable a new generation of spacecraft that can be assembled on orbit and can share existing bus resources.

The panel will address advances in remote maneuvers, the mechanics of on orbit operations and how these services will increase resilience. The innovative missions that will be discussed will inspire new ways of thinking about both GEO and LEO orbit.
