GomSpace has received an order for products and subsystems from EPIC Aerospace with base in Florida, US and Buenos Aires, Argentina
STOCKHOLM, Sept. 8, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — GomSpace announces that EPIC Aerospace has chosen to purchase products and subsystems at a value of approx. 3.8 MSEK from GomSpace for their space tugs. The products and subsystems will be used as part of the space tug control system.
EPIC Aerospace (www.epic-aerospace.com) is a pioneer and leader in space tugs and in orbit transfer vehicles. Their aim is to provide space tugs for launch (enclosures bringing satellites into space while mounted to a rocket), which are able not only to be used for satellite launch services, but also to provide in-orbit transfer of satellites from one orbit to another. This includes the ability to capture a satellite in space and transport them to a different orbit, and potentially back again.
Carsten Drachmann, GomSpace CEO comments: “We have been working with EPIC Aerospace for a while and I am delighted that they have chosen to use GomSpace technology for their very advanced missions enabling a much higher degree of flexibility for how we use space in the future”, and continues, “I am also very pleased that this is the first of many contracts that I expect will come from our strategic focus in the Americas”.
