Orion Space selected to lead US Space
The United States Space Force (USSF) has awarded Orion Space Solutions a contract to develop three spacecraft to support the USSF's mission.
Orion Space Solutions (OSS) brings together a diverse group of experts.
Satellites in GEO orbit fly at a height where the orbital period of the satellite equals the rotational speed of the Earth.
"The OSS team is excited to support USSF," says Chad Fish.
Orion Space Solutions' COO and the project's principal investigator. The team was made up primarily of small, non-traditional aerospace companies.
The OSS team has extensive experience in mission-specific system development, including spacecraft and payload design, assembly, integration, and testing capabilities.
