Small satellite builder Terran Orbital has secured a contract from Lockheed Martin to manufacture 36 Beta satellite buses for the second tranche of the Space Development Agency's data communications transport layer. Terran Orbital said Tuesday it will deliver the satellite buses to Lockheed for payload integration with the Proliferated Warfighter Space Architecture's Tranche 2 Transport Layer Beta variant prototype constellation, which will form the foundation of the T2TL.


Terran Orbital has expanded its capability to assemble printed circuit boards with the opening of two new advanced PCBA Surface Mount Technology lines at its facility in Irvine, California. The facility is now equipped with additional capabilities for post-SMT processes, 3D X-ray testing, fully automated inspection and automated optical inspection and has the capacity to produce 5,000 printed circuit boards per month.

French aerospace and defense company Safran and Terran Orbital have partnered to look into the potential of producing electric propulsion systems for satellites in the U.S. Terra Orbital said Friday the memorandum of agreement with Safran Spacecraft Propulsion will seek to explore the feasibility of using the latter’s PPSX00 plasma thruster as basis for new satellite electric […] More
A moon-orbiting spacecraft Terran Orbital built for NASA has completed its primary mission to navigate the Near Rectilinear Halo Orbit and has captured images of the moon. The company said CAPSTONE performed initial demonstration tests of the Cislunar Autonomous Positioning System, an autonomous navigation software platform that helps the vehicle to determine its location without […] More
Terran Orbital completed a contract involving the use of its GEOStare SV2 spacecraft to capture satellite images for an independent research project owned by Lockheed Martin. As part of the commercial data services imagery contract, Terran Orbital said Monday it demonstrated a cost-effective method to re-task GEOStare to assemble the thousands of Lockheed-requested imagery. GEOStare […] More
Terran Orbital has shipped the 10th hardware that Lockheed Martin will integrate into small satellites for an optical crosslink mesh network demonstration with the Space Development Agency. The satellite bus delivery marks the completion of an order for Tranche 0 of the Space Development Agency’s Transport Layer constellation, Terran Orbital said Thursday. SDA awarded Lockheed […] More
Terran Orbital has created a business unit with the goal of developing electro-optical satellite imaging systems intended for Earth observation and monitoring efforts in the space domain. Alex Pertica, a 36-year veteran of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, will serve as head of the newly formed Optical Solutions Group, the company said Thursday. In his prior […] More
Terran Orbital has been granted a $100 million investment from Lockheed Martin following its entry into a note and warrant purchase agreement with the defense contractor and is planning to use the funding to expand its advanced satellite product manufacturing capabilities. The partnership aligns with a new strategic cooperation agreement that will provide Lockheed with […] More
A Terran Orbital-built nanosatellite spacecraft has been integrated into NASA’s Space Launch System rocket to collect lunar surface images and gather data during the Artemis I mission. The Lunar Infrared Imaging spacecraft will launch from the Orion stage adapter to conduct a flyby, collect surface thermography and run deep-space operations technology demonstrations as part of […] More
Jonathan Siegmann, former analyst at a private equity firm, has been named senior vice president of corporate development at Terran Orbital, a satellite manufacturer that works with U.S. and NATO ally government clientele. Siegmann will leverage experience in business development and sales in the aerospace and chemical industries to head up Terran Orbital’s investor dynamics, mergers and […] More
Terran Orbital, a small satellite manufacturer in the defense and aerospace sector, has successfully conducted the first round of maintenance tasks needed to enable a NASA lunar mission. A Terran Orbital team carried out the first TCM burn of the CAPSTONE orbiter satellite — which draws energy from the gravitational pull of the Sun rather than […] More
A Terran Orbital-built satellite was integrated aboard Rocket Lab’s Electron rocket in preparation for a planned launch on Monday, June 27, from a launch complex in New Zealand in support of NASA’s Artemis program. The Cislunar Autonomous Positioning System Technology Operations and Navigation Experiment, also known as the CAPSTONE satellite, will lift off to test […] More
