Space Force orders ‘jetpack’ to give 2 years of maneuverability to military satellite


The U.S. Space Force has ordered a first-of-its-kind satellite docking mission in order to give an on-orbit spacecraft an additional two years of propulsion and maneuverability.

Space Systems Command (SSC), an organization within the U.S. Space Force tasked with acquiring and deploying new military space technologies, awarded a $37.5 million contract to Seattle-based company Starfish Space to build and launch one of the firm’s “Otter” spacecraft.
