Outpost is offering customers precision Earth return of orbital payloads by designing and building reusable satellites. Two Made In Space co-founders teamed up with a paragliding expert to found Outpost, a startup focused on returning satellites and payloads from orbit. Outpost plans to return satellites weighing about 200 kilograms. In contrast to space capsule return flights that rely on rigid ablative heat shields, ballistic atmospheric entry and parachutes opening at low altitudes, Outpost has developed “lightweight and compact” systems that “deploy using pneumatic inflation,” Vergalla said.
