Active Technology Project

Project Introduction

The Restore-L Mission will demonstrate refueling and a relocation of the Landsat 7 satellite. Restore-L will launch to a nominal (LEO) altitude of 680 km and conduct its on-orbit checkout. Landsat 7 will descend to a servicing altitude of 685 km and enter a stable, solar-inertial attitude. Restore-L will then use both ground-generated and on-board navigation solutions to rendezvous with Landsat 7 and perform an autonomous capture. After client capture, the assigned refueling tasks will be performed by ground operators. When all refueling tasks are complete, Restore-L will modify Landsat 7’s orbit to demonstrate relocation capability then release the spacecraft and depart to its own transit orbit. More »
