[Satellite TODAY 08-08-13] ATK will exhibit its products and capabilities including small satellite platforms at the 2013 AIAA/USU Conference on Small Satellites in Logan, Utah.
ATK will display its turn-key capabilities for building smaller systems for constellation missions as demonstrated by the successful National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) Time History of Events and Macroscale Interactions during Substorms (THEMIS) and Acceleration, Reconnection, Turbulence and Electrodynamics of the Moon’s Interaction with the Sun (ARTEMIS) missions.
ATK built five microsatellites for NASA’s THEMIS mission to study the effects of severe space storms in Earth’s magnetic field. Two of those satellites were redirected to the ARTEMIS mission to study the moon’s interaction with the sun. Additionally, ATK recently expanded its premier product line of small satellites to address the changing needs of today’s space market, which will be on display at the exhibition.
