Northrop Demos SharkSat Payload’s Telemetry Data Transmission Ability; Candace Givens Quoted

TYSONS CORNER, VA, February 24, 2021 — Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) demonstrated the ability of its SharkSat payload to gather performance and telemetry information following its departure from the International Space Station and then send the data to mission controllers for validation of the potential addition of new software to an in-flight satellite, ExecutiveBiz reported Feb. 16.

“SharkSat’s success directly reflects the speed and agility that our team put forth to deliver mission success,” said Candace Givens, vice president of payload and ground systems division at Northrop.

SharkSat’s demonstration in January lasted for two weeks and was conducted after three months of being hosted at the ISS aboard the company-built Cygnus spacecraft.
