Northrop Grumman dicit:
SpaceLogistics LLC, a Northrop Grumman Company, has partnered with DARPA on the agency’s Robotic Servicing of Geosynchronous Satellites (RSGS) program.
The groundbreaking mission features the first-ever commercial robotic servicing spacecraft, known as the Mission Robotic Vehicle (MRV), and aims to expand the market for satellite servicing with advanced robotics technology.
The company is also developing Mission Extension Pods (MEPs) to be installed by the MRV. The new pods act in place of the propulsion system of aging satellites and provide six years of life extension.
