Launched in June of 2023 on the Transporter-8 mission, DARPA’s Blackjack program aims to develop and demonstrate critical elements for a global high-speed network in LEO that provides the DoD with highly connected, resilient, and persistent coverage.
In January 2023, the Caltech Space Solar Power Project (SSPP) launched a prototype of the Space Solar Power Demonstrator (SSPD) into orbit which successfully tested several key components meant to harvest solar power in space and beam the energy back to Earth.
Launched in November of 2022 on a Falcon9 rocket from Cape Canaveral, this mission explores ice deposits in the moon’s permanently shadowed craters to detect composition, quantity, distribution, form of water/H species and other volatiles found there.
Launched in November of 2022 on SLS, this mission is a robotic reconnaissance mission that will be deployed to fly by, and return data from, an asteroid representative of NEAs that may one day be human destinations.returns data from an asteroid representative of near-earth asteroids (NEAs) that may one day be human destinations.
Launched in November of 2022 on SLS, this mission demonstrates a biosensor to detect, measure, and correlates the impact of space radiation to living organisms over long durations beyond Low Earth Orbit (LEO).
Launched in in November of 2022 on SLS, this mission from ASU’s School of Earth and Space Exploration searches for hydrogen deposits on the Moon’s south pole.
Launched on SLS in November of 2022, EQUULEUS measures the distribution of plasma that surrounds the Earth’s plasmasphere to help scientists understand the radiation environment in that region.
Launched on October 7, 2022 on a RocketLab Electron, MMA’s dragNET De-orbit System hitched a ride on the GAzelle Satellite carrying Argos-4, which will become part of the Argos constellation supported by the NOAA Cooperative Data and Rescue Services Program.
Launched on June 30, 2022, NeuSAR is a pathfinder mission enabling Singapore’s space operations to capture images day or night, through heavy cloud cover or other adverse weather conditions using MMA’s next generation DaHGR antenna.
Launched in August of 2021, this enhanced HaWK is on a DoD Mission.
Launched in July of 2021, this enhanced HaWK is on a DoD Mission.
Launched in June of 2021, this enhanced HaWK is on a DoD Mission.
Launching in 2019, DARPA’s Radio Frequency Risk Reduction Deployment Demonstration (R3D2) demonstration space-qualifies a new type of membrane reflectarray antenna, MMA’s P-DaHGR. This mission proves out the smaller, faster-to-launch and lower-cost capability, allowing the Department of Defense, as well as other users, to make the most of the new commercial market for small, inexpensive launch vehicles.
Launched in June of 2019, MMA provided a deployable membrane photon sieve to demonstrate large aperture optical telescope technologies. This mission in partnership with ARFL aims to image the sun.
Launching in May of 2019, the Space Plug-and-play Architecture (SPA) Research Cubesat, or SPARC-1 mission, is a joint program between the US and Sweden to explore the potential of modular, miniature avionics to empower spacecraft with for useful military applications.
Launched in May 2018, JPL’s Mars Cube One “MarCO ” mission sent CubeSats to Mars, powered by MMA HaWK Solar Arrays. MarCO’s twin satellites provided real-time data relay during descent and landing of the InSight Mars Lander, and is the first interplanetary CubeSat mission.
Launched in May 2018, this HaWK is powering data relays to satellites using laser communication down links for higher data transfer rates.
MMA’s HaWK Solar Array launched in November of 2017 and is successfully powering the ASTERIA mission. This exciting mission won the 2018 SmallSat Mission of the Year and is a technology demonstration, conducing astrophysical measurements using a CubeSat.
MMA’s HaWK Solar Array launched in April of 2017 with the SHARC mission. It is successfully on orbit, and will help to accelerate the satellite’s de-orbit at end-of-life to mitigate orbital debris.
Two of these dragNET De-orbit Systems launched in November of 2013 on the Minotaur I ORS-2 Mission out of NASA Wallops. One dragNET successfully de-orbited the upper stage of the launch vehicle in January of 2016. The other is on the STPSat-3 and is awaiting mission completion to activate.
