This 14-month effort will coincide with DARPA’s Orbital Express program, the goal of which is to develop the capability for performing on-orbit servicing of critical space assets. The Phase II effort will include final design of the docking and servicing mechanism along with testing of the mechanism and other subsystems at Marshall Space Flight Center’s Flight Robotics Laboratory.
