Spaceflight Inc. and NanoRacks Announces Partnership to Deploy Planet Labs Cubesats
Jul 17 14
Spaceflight Inc. and NanoRacks are assisting Planet Labs in the launch of 28 CubeSats from the International Space Station (ISS) as part of a joint teaming agreement. The Earth-imaging satellites were carried aboard an Orbital Sciences-built Cygnus spacecraft, which docked with the ISS. Spaceflight Inc. tapped its launch-industry network to arrange for the transport of the CubeSats to the ISS, where NanoRacks will send them into orbit. The satellites are deployed from the ISS using NanoRacks' CubeSat Deployers, which are built by Quad-M. NanoRacks was able to manifest the satellites through a Space Act Agreement (SAA) with NASA.
UrtheCast and Nanoracks to Install Earth Observation Cameras on NASA Segment of Space Station
Jul 16 14
UrtheCast Corp. announced that pursuant to its agreement with NanoRacks, LLC it plans to dramatically expand its Earth Observation data stream by operating sensors on the NASA segment of the International Space Station (ISS). The installation of the sensors further enhances UrtheCast's market leadership for Space Station-based Earth Observation (EO). The Company intends to develop and supply the EO sensors, electronics and all related hardware. NanoRacks, working with the U.S. National Lab manager CASIS, will facilitate the launch, installation and onboard integration of the cameras and hardware in accordance with its Space Act Agreement with NASA. UrtheCast intends to develop two Sensors, a high resolution dual-mode optical/video camera and a high resolution dual-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), which will complement its current sensors aboard the ISS. The co-location of these sensors will allow for new EO products that are not currently available to the market. The sensors and their components are scheduled to launch to the ISS in 2016, and it is anticipated that the data will be available in 2017.
