Rich White

TYSONS CORNER, VA, March 6, 2017 — SSL has provided a two-axis gimbal equipment for NASA‘s Raven technology that was launched in February to the International Space Station, ExecutiveBiz reported Wednesday.

The company said Tuesday the gimbal equipment is based on its Dual Access Positioning Mechanism and is designed to direct rendezvous and proximity operations sensors at spacecraft that visit ISS.

“Our contribution to Raven is another example of a technology that will help mature satellite servicing capability,” said Rich White, senior vice president of business development at SSL’s government systems business.

“Mastering complex in-space robotic manipulation of satellites is fundamental to the security of our nation’s current satellite fleets and deployment and maintenance of future space architectures.”
