Ball Aerospace will help the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration study instrument designs for measuring atmospheric composition and ocean color as part of its Geostationary Extended Observations program. The company said Thursday it was selected for two 20-month studies to inform the development of next generation geostationary weather satellite constellation the agency is undertaking to […] More
Ball Aerospace has passed the critical design review for a space weather monitoring satellite it is developing to support the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s mission objectives. The company said Tuesday completing the CDR for NOAA’s Space Weather Follow On-Lagrange 1 spacecraft meant it can now move to production, integration and test phases. SWFO-L1 is […] More
Ball Aerospace helped NASA complete the critical design review of a satellite designed to map the sky and support scientists’ study on the cause of cosmic inflation in the universe’s earlier stages. The company said Wednesday it designed, integrated and tested the Spectro-Photometer for the History of the Universe, Epoch of Reionization and Ices Explorer […] More
NASA launched a Ball Aerospace-built space observatory Thursday for the agency’s joint mission with its Italian counterpart to study X-rays from supermassive black holes, supernova remnants and other high-energy objects in the universe. The Imaging X-ray Polarimetry Explorer spacecraft lifted Thursday aboard SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket and will use three telescopes with sensitive detectors to […] More
Ball Aerospace has shipped a new observatory spacecraft to Cape Canaveral, Florida, for an upcoming NASA mission that will measure cosmic X-ray polarization while in orbit. The company said Wednesday it built the Imaging X-Ray Polarimetry Explorer under a collaboration with NASA and the Italian Space Agency. IXPE will launch in December from Kennedy Space […] More
Ball Aerospace has expanded its presence in Colorado with the opening of a new 160,000-square-foot facility that will focus on building payloads and providing post-launch support for various space programs. The new Payload Development Facility adds advanced integration and test areas, a mission support center, more offices and cleanroom space to the existing Broomfield Research […] More
Ball Aerospace has received a potential $8 million contract from NASA to study the geostationary Sounder instrument in support of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Geostationary and Extended Observations program. The space agency said Thursday that under the firm-fixed-price contract, the company will conduct the definition-phase A study of the hyperspectral infrared instrument intended […] More
NASA has tasked Ball Aerospace to study two architecture concepts designed to modernize instruments of Earth imagery satellites. The company said Monday it will assess how constellation and single satellite concepts can accommodate new spectral bands and orbit parameters as well as enhanced spatial resolution for the Landsat Next program.  Ball will seek to determine […] More
A Northrop Grumman and Ball Aerospace team has concluded the critical design review for an infrared-based satellite mission payload designed to meet the U.S. Space Force’s national security requirements. Next-Generation Overhead Persistent Infrared satellites, whose development is led by Lockheed Martin, are designed to alert the U.S. military on missile threats and would succeed the […] More
Ball Aerospace has concluded the preliminary design review of a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration spacecraft meant to continuously observe the sun’s outermost atmospheric layer and measure upstream solar wind for data collection efforts. The company said Thursday completing Space Weather Follow On-Lagrange 1‘s PDR allows the spacecraft to enter a critical design phase for […] More

NASA has selected Ball Aerospace to develop a spacecraft that would help the agency study the atmosphere's outermost region that transitions into space as part of the agency's heliophysics science mission of opportunity. The company said Tuesday it will build the Global Lyman-alpha Imager of the Dynamic Exosphere or GLIDE spacecraft that would track the hydrogen-based ultraviolet light found in the region.
