Orbotic Systems reveals technology to clean-up space junk
The propellant free D3 takes flight. Control and de-orbit spacecraft without dangerous propellant.
Orbotic Systems today announced the successful launch of the De-orbit Drag Device (D3) aboard SpaceX Falcon 9 mission CRS-25. Developed in conjunction with NASA and University of Florida, the D3 can maneuver and de-orbit a satellite without dangerous rocket fuel. This major milestone for Orbotic Systems will provide an inexpensive de-orbiting and maneuvering solution for satellites. Removing dead satellites at the end of their mission is critical to keeping space clean and safe for everyone.
"The D3 is game changing technology enabling satellites to avoid debris, maneuver without propellant, and de-orbit at the end of their mission," says Erik T. Long, CEO at Orbotic Systems. "The D3 will solve the space junk problem before it ever starts."
The success of this highly anticipated launch comes after a series of recent accomplishments by Orbotic Systems, including:
