Gilmour Space and Atomos Space sign MoU for launch and in-space transfers

Denver CO (SPX) Feb 28, 2023

Gilmour Space Technologies and Atomos Space have announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to explore a multi-year contract for Gilmour and Atomos to mutually purchase services for launch and in-space transportation.

The partnership will see Atomos contract Gilmour for launch services on its Eris and upcoming orbital launch vehicles. In addition, Atomos' Orbital Transfer Vehicles (OTVs) will provide in-space transportation services to customers and launch aggregation services of multiple customer spacecraft for launch on Gilmour vehicles.

While the barrier to entry for satellites to get to space is decreasing significantly, some applications require access into difficult-to-reach orbits. Atomos Space solves this problem by providing in-space transportation and orbit-raising services to satellites.

Atomos has a unique approach where, unlike similar systems under development, their OTVs reside in space and rendezvous with client satellites on-orbit. This allows the full launch mass and volume to be reserved for the payload, reducing costs to the customer and allowing launch vehicles, such as Eris, to be used for a wider range of missions.

"This new agreement with Atomos is an exciting opportunity for Gilmour," said Adam Gilmour, CEO of Gilmour Space Technologies. "We look forward to exploring the possibility of leveraging Atomos's orbital transfer capabilities to expand our services and the flexibility of access to space to new markets and customers."

"By leveraging the strengths of each of our companies, we anticipate being able to provide unparalleled services to customers in the space launch and transportation industry." said Vanessa Clark, CEO of Atomos.

Japan's H3 rocket fails to leave the launch pad
Space Coast FL (SPX) Feb 17, 2023
Another setback for Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA). Japan's H3 rocket was scheduled to lift off from Tanegashima Space Center, Japan at 10:37 a.m. Japan Standard Time on February 17th. It was supposed to launch Advanced Land Observing Satellite-3 (ALOS-3), also known as Daichi-3 into a Sun-synchronous orbit (SSO). ALOS-3 is an advanced, Earth observing satellite, to be used for cartography, regional observation, disaster monitoring, and resource surveying. JAXA aborted H3 rocket's ... read more
