Another MMA HaWK Takes Flight!

Another MMA HaWK Solar Array launched at 2 am Eastern on May 5th from New Zealand on a Rocket Lab Electron rocket. The Space Plug and Play Architecture Research CubeSat-1 (SPARC-1), a six-unit cubesat sponsored by the Air Force Research Laboratory in cooperation with the Swedish military, was one of three satellites hitching a ride yesterday. MMA’s HaWKs will provide critical space power to the SPARC-1 mission which is a technology demonstration aiming to test modular spacecraft avionics.
