Katalyst Space Technologies upgrades satellites post-launch using in-space servicing, giving operators a second chance to add features that maintain their competitive edge.
Building a satellite is risky, capital intensive, and can take decades. Satellite designs are locked years before launch, which forces companies to make decisions too early, without the right information. Because of long design and build cycles, businesses and governments have to live with the consequences of decisions they made years ago.
Space is changing faster than ever before. Today, operators grapple with congestion. Tomorrow, they might face conflict from new adversaries in space. It’s impossible to predict every challenge, which is why operators must be able to respond quickly.
Through upgrades, established companies can unlock revenue and access new markets without having to launch new satellites.
Upgrades provide flexibility to add new capabilities to traditional large dedicated platforms and adapt existing assets to meet current needs.
With upgrades, companies and governments can adapt to constant change, instead of making bets based on 10 year forecasts of the future
The margins on life extension missions are slim, but when you couple life extension with capability upgrades, the investment becomes feasible.
By enabling the upgrade economy, Katalyst reduces our reliance on the single-use model, preventing waste and congestion in space.
Upgrades make it possible to test improved technology on existing platforms, accelerating the pace of innovation in space.
