Momentus to Discuss Role of Orbital Service Vehicles in Management of Satellite Constellations

February 2, 2023

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 2, 2023-- Momentus Inc. (NASDAQ: MNTS) (“Momentus” or the “Company”), a U.S. commercial space company that offers transportation and other in-space infrastructure services, will participate in the Architectural and Technical Considerations in SmallSat Constellations panel at the 2023 SmallSat Symposium.

Rob Schwarz, Momentus Chief Technology Officer, will join other industry smallsat leaders – including Momentus customer FOSSA Systems – to discuss the opportunities, challenges, and impact of small satellite constellations. The panel is scheduled from 8:30 a.m. to 9:15 a.m. Pacific Time on February 9.

“Orbital Service Vehicles can provide less expensive launch options for customers to build a high volume of satellites without propulsion systems,” said Schwarz. “Customers can then rely on servicing vehicles to remove failed satellites, reducing the burden of collision avoidance. As in-space infrastructure services mature, small satellite constellations can extend mission lifetime and better serve commercial and government mission sets.”

In addition to the panel, Momentus sales and technical representatives will be available to meet February 7-9 at SmallSat Symposium. Email to schedule time with the team.

Momentus has two Vigoride Orbital Service Vehicles in space. During its inaugural mission launched in May 2022, Momentus deployed eight payloads from Vigoride and a third-party deployer. A next-generation Vigoride launched January 3 on the Company’s second demonstration mission. You can read the latest mission update here.

The Company recently announced it will deliver next-generation satellites for FOSSA Systems to low-Earth orbit, an important step toward Momentus’ first large-scale constellation deployment. In 2023, the Company is also targeting flying smallsat payloads for NASA, CONTEC CO., the Australian Research Centre, and other customers.
