Momentus plans to offer in-space infrastructure services by building transfer and service vehicles that will carry satellites and hosted payloads between orbits in space.
LAST-MILE IN-SPACE DELIVERY
With the cost of launch declining, it is now easier than ever to get a satellite dropped off at a common orbit. But many space-based applications need their satellites and cargo in highly precise orbits in order to function. How do you get your satellite from a generic orbit to a custom one? Momentus hopes to help.
Our offered charter service will grant customers exclusive use of transport and service vehicles. Offered at a fixed price, the customer will have dedicated access to the entire vehicle capacity to be delivered at an orbit tailored to the customer’s needs.
Public transportation is the affordable option. Arrive in space atop a large reusable rocket along with many other rideshare customers, and our transport and service vehicle will carry each satellite to precise, custom orbits—it’s the hub and spoke model, in space. After the final drop-off, our vehicles will deorbit, but will be reusable in the future.
REFUEL, REPOSITION, REPAIR, DE-ORBIT
We anticipate that next-generation Momentus reusable vehicles equipped with robotic arms will be capable of performing proximity maneuvers, docking, and refueling, and will be well-suited for an entire range of in-orbit services.
