Terran Orbital unveils SmallSat GEO

On March 14, Boca Raton, FL-based Terran Orbital Corporation, a provider of satellite-based solutions primarily serving the aerospace and defense industries, announced its entrance into the small satellite geosynchronous orbit (GEO) market with its SmallSat GEO solution for satellites above 500kg.

SmallSat GEO is intended for the communications market and can operate in geosynchronous orbit and provide higher power and performance than may have been needed in low-earth orbit (LEO). The geosynchronous market is moving toward small satellites with more and more GEO spacecraft ordered in the small size class. Terran Orbital is leveraging its investment in a 94,000 sq ft advanced manufacturing facility with automation in build and test, as well as three previous GEO missions, to expand into this market.

“Our customers require agility, affordability, and the ability to adapt their geosynchronous communication architecture,” said Marc Bell, co-founder, chairman, and chief executive officer at Terran Orbital. “We can bring our LEO small satellite heritage to GEO and provide the agile customization that our customers have come to expect and value.”
