Ball Aerospace said Tuesday USAF plans to use the Mission Data Processing Application Framework as a data collection testbed under the Future Operationally Resilient Ground Evolution initiative, […] More
NASA‘s Ames Research Center has given the Group Achievement Award to Ball Aerospace in recognition of the company’s solar pressure approach that helped the Kepler Space Telescope continue operating. The company said Wednesday it developed an approach that directed Kepler observatory spacecraft to use solar pressure and thrusters for control as alternatives to one of […] More
Argo AI has granted Ball Aerospace exclusive rights to manufacture light detection and ranging camera systems for potential use in government, space and defense missions. Ball Aerospace said Monday it will produce Geiger-mode avalanche photodiode LiDAR technology intended to function as a key component of non-conventional imaging and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance platforms. The company plans to create three variants […] More
NASA obtained data from its latest observation campaign of the Ball Aerospace-built Kepler spacecraft, despite the observatory having only a little amount of fuel onboard. The space agency said Friday it put the space telescope on hibernation mode after NASA found that the craft’s tank was running on low fuel. Kepler was roused from sleep Aug. 2, […] More
Ball Aerospace has helped NASA complete the preliminary design review of a space-based astrophysics observatory designed to measure cosmic X-ray polarization. NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center collaborated with Ball, the Italian space agency and other industry partners on the Imaging X-Ray Polarimetry Explorer PDR effort at a facility in Boulder, Colo., the company said Wednesday. IXPE is scheduled for 2021 launch […] More
NASA has selected Ball Aerospace to produce an optical technology for a new space observatory designed to help scientists conduct research into dark energy, exoplanets and infrared astrophysics. The company said Wednesday it will build the Optical Mechanical Assembly for the Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope and support WFI integration and test efforts. Jim Oschmann, vice president and general manager […] More
Ball Aerospace has completed the second of five assessments on a space system testing platform being developed for the Air Force Research Laboratory and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. The company said Thursday it demonstrated the open and development approach for the Space Evaluation and Analysis Capability testbed through DARPA’s Hallmark program. “To assess the effectiveness of the […] More
Ball Aerospace has handed over the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration‘s first Joint Polar Satellite System to NASA after the completion of a satellite acceptance review. The company said Thursday the acceptance review showed that the JPSS-1 weather satellite, which now operates as NOAA-20, satisfied on-orbit requirements. Ball Aerospace-built NOAA-20 launched in November 2017 aboard United […] More
BAE Systems has selected Ball Aerospace to provide multi-beam phased array antenna systems in support of the former’s contractual effort to build a Network Tactical Common Data Link System for the U.S. Navy.
