Starfish envisages operating a fleet of dozens of Otters in orbit that can be called upon to assist another satellite, providing extra thrust to extend its life or de-orbiting it if there is a component failure.

Starfish will soon test its flight software on thrusters Benchmark Space Systems is developing, which will be part of a condosat launching in June 2022 on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rideshare mission to demo in-orbit refueling.

We are developing a revolutionary autonomous vehicle to perform satellite servicing missions.

CEPHALOPOD

Our CEPHALOPOD Software Package
Starfish’s CEPHALOPOD software was selected as a winner
of the Hyperspace Challenge! Satellite, Rendezvous, Proximity Operations, and Docking (RPOD) missions are difficult, but open up new opportunities in space. Making use of electric propulsion
and small spacecraft technologies can enable modern, efficient RPOD missions.
 
We advance on-orbit transportation with versatile, affordable and reliable servicing vehicles.
 
CEPHALOPOD is autonomous RPOD software that can use electric propulsion, enabling small RPOD spacecraft. This on-board guidance, navigation, and control capability can give small servicing vehicles 8x more maneuvering capability.

  • Enables RPOD missions with EP.
  • Highly autonomous on-board operations.
  • Reduce vehicle mass and cost.
  • Significant built-in safety features.

The Nautilus Capture Mechanism

The versatile mechanism works on surfaces that were not designed for docking.

  • Adheres to broad set of capture surfaces
  • Dynamic damping of docked bodies
  • Many mission reuse capability
  • Multi-year operational life

The Nautilus capture mechanism attaches to satellites for docking and manipulation.

Even if Starfish can stabilize Otter Pup, the spacecraft won’t be able to go ahead with its original mission to rendezvous with Orbiter SN3 because of that spacecraft is no longer operating. The company didn’t state what alternative missions it can perform to test technology it plans to use on future satellite servicing vehicles (SpaceNews, 2023-06-23).
