DEORBIT (Decluttering of Earth Orbit to Repurpose for Bespoke Innovative Technologies)

The Decluttering of Earth Orbit to Repurpose for Bespoke Innovative Technologies (DEORBIT) system enables increased transportation and manipulation of materials in Low-Earth Orbit (LEO).

DEORBIT addresses current needs for debris mitigation in space while also enabling safer and more effective OSAM practices. By locating and removing unwanted or unknown items from targeted zones in LEO, the technology is able to certify the build site for activity while also staying involved in later processes. This leads to a versatile tool for use in practices that expand beyond LEO, where the movement of resources into targeted areas allows for allocation of necessary supplies to arrive ahead of an incoming crew, shifting the risk profile.

The ability to clear zones in LEO and support manufacturing activities reinforces renewable initiatives for debris and materials in microgravity while opening the environment to greater expansion for technologies that require free space to operate. DEORBIT allows more controlled rendezvous efforts that enable greater movement of components and people as human expansion continues deeper into space.

In-Space Servicing, Assembly, and Manufacturing

Expanding the capacity for space infrastructure and building a market around space-based technology

Martian Sky Industries Awarded an Orbital Prime Contract

Martian Sky Industries is proud to announce that we have been awarded a Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) contract through the SpaceWERX Orbital Prime program in 2022.

We strive to lead innovation in the In-space Servicing, Assembly, and Manufacturing (ISAM) market with our government, academic and industry partners.

This contract marks an important step in our mission to bring debris mitigation, object characterization and deorbiting to the Low Earth Orbit (LEO) market. We would like to thank the Department of the Air Force and United States Space Force for this opportunity and congratulate the other partnered companies and research institutions working to advance the ISAM market.
