orbital sciences corp (ORB) Details

Orbital Sciences Corporation develops and manufactures small- and medium-class rockets and space systems for commercial, military, and civil government customers in the United States, Europe, Eurasia, Mexico, South America, and East Asia. It operates through three segments: Launch Vehicles, Satellites and Space Systems, and Advanced Space Programs. The Launch Vehicles segment develops and produces space launch vehicles that place satellites into low-earth orbit; interceptor launch vehicles for missile defense systems, such as interceptor boosters; and target launch vehicles, such as suborbital rockets and their principal subsystems, as well as payloads carried by vehicles used in the development and testing of missile defense systems. The Satellites and Space Systems segment develops and produces communications satellites that provide cable and direct-to-home television distribution, business data network connectivity, regional mobile telephony, and other space-based communications services; and science and remote sensing satellites that are used to conduct space-related scientific research, collect imagery and other remotely-sensed data about the Earth, carry out interplanetary and other deep-space exploration missions, and demonstrate new space technologies. This segment also offers space systems and subsystems, including satellite command and data handling, and attitude control and structural subsystems; and a range of space-related technical services, such as analytical, engineering, and production services for space-related science and defense programs. The Advanced Space Programs segment develops and produces human-rated space systems to be used in earth orbit, planetary exploration, and other space missions; advanced flight systems; and small- and medium-class satellites and related systems used for national security space missions and related technology demonstration programs. The company was founded in 1982 and is headquartered in Dulles, Virginia.

National Aeronautics and Space Administration Selects Orbital Sciences Corporation for its Pegasus Rocket to Launch Icon Ionospheric Science Satellite

Orbital Sciences Corporation announced that the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has awarded the company a contract for its Pegasus(R) rocket to launch the space agency's Ionospheric Connection Explorer (ICON) scientific satellite into low Earth orbit. With the selection of Orbital's air-launched Pegasus rocket, NASA is again turning to Orbital to provide both the satellite and launch vehicle for an important science mission based on advanced and cost-effective smaller space systems. In 2013, NASA selected Orbital to design, build and test the ICON satellite. The spacecraft is now starting production at Orbital's Dulles, VA satellite design, manufacturing and testing facilities. The launch of ICON aboard Pegasus will take place in mid-2017 from the Reagan Test Site at Kwajalein Island near the equator in the mid-Pacific Ocean area. Orbital has provided both the satellite and launch vehicle for numerous previous NASA scientific missions, which have provided scientists around the world with critical data in the fields of Earth science, heliosphysics and astrophysics.
