Orbital Transports, Inc. has debuted their Small Satellite Catalog on its website. By bringing the entire small satellite supply chain online, Orbital Transports is able to offer hardware, software, services, and engineering expertise in a single, searchable, structured catalog.
The first resource of its kind, this catalog offers everything a satellite operator or user needs to plan a successful mission.
The catalog offers a wide variety of small satellite hardware components, small satellite buses specialized for common space missions, ground station services, and mission operations software from more than a dozen partner companies. Orbital Transports has brought together the industry’s most innovative and reliable companies to offer the widest possible set of solutions while meeting clients' quality requirements. The catalog will also grow in the near future to include launch, legal, and regulatory services.
Following the launch of the catalog, Orbital Transports will also release an online mission builder “wizard” that will allow users to define their goals and then guide them in building a complete spacecraft including selecting their payload, bus, timeframe, orbit, and launch. In combination with the online catalog, this mission builder tool will allow anyone who is interested in obtaining valuable data from space to quickly and easily design and execute their mission.
The catalog is just the beginning, noted the company's CEO, David Hurst, who added that Orbital Transports offers a complete mission outsourcing, including assembly, testing, and integration. The firm can even book a launch, operate a mission and deliver data. If there is a need to get something to space, Orbital Transports can handle the entire process as the company focuses on making the mission successful. Customers don't have to do the research to find vendors and build relationships with dozens of individual companies because Orbital Transports has already accomplished that task, creating the trusted source that customers can turn to for all their smallsat mission needs.
