Based on the Moog NSSL Secondary Payload Adapter (ESPA) ring, the OMV is designed to launch on NSSL-class launch vehicles (Atlas V, Delta IV, Falcon 9) while supporting up to 1500 kg of secondary payloads with a variety of standard separation systems.
AAC Clyde Space has been selected to develop a new solar panel for Moog's new Small Launch Orbital Manoeuvring Vehicle (SL-OMV), a space tug designed to deploy Cubesat constellations and guide small satellites to their final orbit. The order value is 340 000 GBP (approx. 4.0 MSEK) with planned delivery during the first quarter of 2021.
