Groundbreaking Technology May Add Years to Earth Orbiting Satellites

Satellites play vital roles in everyday life. From weather observations to navigation to communications, Earth-orbiting spacecraft are now so prevalent they could easily be taken for granted. A team at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, collaborating with counterparts at the agency's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., recently demonstrated groundbreaking technology that could add additional years of service to satellites.

Engineers at Kennedy are performing the design, development and qualification testing of the critical hypergolic propellant transfer system for a simulated servicing satellite under the leadership of Tom Aranyos, technical integration manager in the spaceport's Fluids and Propulsion Division and Gary Snyder, project manager for the satellite servicing project at the space center.
