Ball Aerospace has delivered to Vandenberg Space Force Base the MethaneSAT satellite which, once in orbit, will work to identify global sources of methane -- a major contributor to climate warming -- with the help of its two advanced spectrometers. Ball Aerospace said Wednesday that MethaneSAT's instruments will make it possible to track methane emissions at a regional level as well as at the level of individual sources, complementing current capabilities that focus on either scale or precision.

Ball Aerospace will manage a concept study for the NASA Explorers Program to understand the magnetism of the sun and how it affects space, Earth and other planets. The company said Tuesday the Chromospheric Magnetism Explorer mission concept would use a near ultraviolet spectropolarimeter to make novel observations of the solar magnetic field in the chromosphere to learn how magnetic energy buildup leads to solar flares and coronal mass ejections.

A space-based instrument Ball Aerospace manufactured for NASA has begun transmitting images meant to support air pollution research in North America. Ball said Thursday the Tropospheric Emissions: Monitoring of Pollution system recently completed its first solar calibration scan mission, capturing major air pollutants like ozone, nitrogen dioxide, sulfur dioxide and formaldehyde. The Maxar Technologies-built commercial Intelsat IS-40e […] More
The National Center of Atmospheric Research has tapped Ball Aerospace to design a radio frequency front end system under a program aimed at developing next-generation weather data gathering tool. NCAR’s Airborne Phased Array Radar is meant to boost capability for high-impact weather event data capture to enhance forecasting models, the company said Monday. Both parties […] More
SpiderOak used a Ball Aerospace-made prototype payload to demonstrate a zero trust, end-to-end data security technology it recently deployed to space. The space systems software company said Thursday its OrbitSecure platform achieved flight heritage following tests on the Ball payload operating in low-Earth orbit. OrbitSecure is designed to mitigate disruptions in space communications and satellite […] More
Ball Aerospace will work with Microsoft and Loft Federal on a Space Development Agency program to build and launch into orbit a set of 10 satellites with experimental payloads. Ball Aerospace said Tuesday it will lead spacecraft and payload integration for SDA’s NExT experimental testbed program under a $176 million other transaction prototype agreement awarded […] More
Modern Technology Solutions Inc. has subcontracted Ball Aerospace to work under a National Air and Space Intelligence Center-operated program that supports the U.S. Air Force, Department of Defense and national intelligence organizations.
