The Future of On-Orbit Satellite Servicing
By David Belcher
Debris left from abandoned satellites creates hazards for existing satellite constellations, and occupies space that could be recycled and re-used for other purposes. On-orbit servicing has been considered to be a viable tool to help solve this problem by providing maintenance to satellites to keep them functioning in orbit. In this episode, Avascent’s Analysis Manager David Belcher explores some of the difficulties and unknowns of on-orbit servicing and examines what the future looks like for both the commercial and government markets.
