Rogue is engineering the first generation of Orbital Robots. We call them OrbotsTM. The space industry is growing rapidly, and human presence in space is expanding. OrbotsTM are designed to support the growth of the industry and human endeavours in LEO, GEO and beyond…
Rogue Space Systems Corporation signed a Letter of Intent with OrbitsEdge, Inc. to provide orbital inspection, maintenance, transport, and refueling services for a ten-year period to the OrbitsEdge SatFrame Constellation.
Over the summer of this 2021, Rogue signed an LOI with Orbital Assembly Corporation to provide observation and robotic support services for their PSTAR mission scheduled for 2024. OrbitsEdge is the first constellation customer Rogue has attained. Rogue is looking to begin seeding its Orbot services constellation into LEO beginning in 2022.
Barry-1 is Rogue’s inaugural space flight where we will be testing our advanced compute hardware, algorithms, sensor aggregation and in situ data processing. Once deployed to Lower Earth Orbit (LEO), Orbot, Orbital Robot, Barry-1 will test Rogue’s Scalable Compute Platform (SCP) and its ability to aggregate data from multiple sensors and process that data in real time. Additionally, Rogue will be on-orbit testing internal and customer developed algorithms.
Inspection and monitoring, with high-definition cameras and sensors. Complete with multispectral capabilities that extend customer insight and analysis without having to even come in physical contact with the target asset.
TRANSPORT, CAPTURE & ROBOTICS
Able to move satellites and other assets to and from different orbits, i.e. from GEO to the International Space Station in LEO, and for the occasional “jiggle” when needed.
Rogue’s Orbot™ fleet is supported by AI-Enabled Sensory Observation Platform (AESOP). This AI capability positions the Orbots near the target satellite automatically (compensates for communication lags and lack of visibility from the control station on earth) and automatically takes decisions to make sure the target satellite can be serviced safely. Collision prevention and proximity tracking are key features of AESOP where all sensors on the spacecraft are aggregated into a decision matrix that ensures safe operations in space.
Barry-1 launched on Transporter-9 in November 2023. However, waiting for the Laura mission, which should perform in-space inspection and be better in scope with this database.
