Our spacecraft will rendezvous and dock with current satellites and large debris objects using vision sensors and robotic arms. Utilizing the onboard propulsion system, the spacecraft will either deorbit or change the orbit of the debris object or satellite. Our team has a proven track record of bringing ideas to orbit with over 25 years of experience from SpaceX, Skunk Works, and Electroimpact. Solving this problem is crucial to ensure a sustainable space economy, and is the first step towards our longer term vision of mining Asteroids.
