Boeing
Boeing had a successful year with its 702 platform but the industry demands more dynamic satellites that do not necessarily have 10-15 years of life-time. The technology is rapidly changing and operators need to stay abreast on providing the highest throughput possible. With various small GEO manufacturers already available in the market such as Astranis, Terran Orbital, Maxar Technologies and...
Starlink
Following the near miss of ESA’s Aeolus with one of SpaceX’s Starlink satellite. ESA is calling for strict space and communications regulations. Space is getting congested and especially after Google, Amazon, Facebook and SpaceX have plans to launch Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites constellations that will contribute to thousands of space objects. SpaceX deployed 60 Starlink satellites earlier this year...
Fleet
On Sept.4 Fleet Space Technologies announced that it raised $7.35 million in a second round of investment since its inception in 2015. According to Fleet Space this investment will go to expansion of its current constellation of four cubesats. The second round of investment was led by investors Momenta Ventures and Horizons Ventures which are both tech-based funds. The round...
The move aims to enable Rocket Lab to further increase launch frequency by eliminating the need to build a new first stage for every mission. Work on Rocket Lab’s Electron first stage reuse program began in late 2018, at the end of the company’s first year of orbital launches. The plan to reuse Electron’s first stage will be implemented in...

Earth’s Moon and Mercury, the closest planet to the Sun, may contain significantly more water ice than previously thought, according to a new analysis of data from NASA’s LRO and MESSENGER spacecraft. The potential ice deposits are found in craters near the poles of both worlds. On the Moon, "We found shallow craters tend to be located in areas where...
Kepler
Kepler was able to successfully track and exchange data with Kymeta’s u7 electronically steered antenna (ESA) and Kepler’s two technology demonstration satellites, achieving data transfer speeds of 15 Mbps down and 5 Mbps up, in repeated trials. Kymeta’s u7 electronically steered antenna (ESA) (courtesy: Kymeta) “We are truly excited about the future applications that can now be enabled by Kymeta’s u7...
VORAGO
VORAGO Technologies has delivered prototype samples and evaluation kits to NASA as part of an ongoing NASA Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II grant by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The project that is now at an advanced stage is consistent with VORAGO’s integrated circuit technology expertise and is a key milestone in the project to develop...
NOAA
Our knowledge of the depth and shape of the Arctic Ocean floor – its bathymetry – is insufficient. Owing to year-round sea-ice coverage and the cost of research in this remote region, much of the Arctic Ocean’s bathymetry has remained a mystery, until now. Bathymetry maps are crucial for studying ocean dynamics, currents and tides, as well as for ship...
