Northrop Grumman bullish on future of on-orbit servicing

After successfully completing the first docking of two commercial spacecraft on orbit and returning their client satellite back to service, Northrop Grumman is bullish on the market for its new satellite life-extension service
Northrop subsidiary SpaceLogistics’ first-ever life-extension mission began in October, when the company launched its Mission Extension Vehicle, or MEV-1, into orbit
By attaching itself to the client satellite, MEV-1 uses its own propulsion systems in lieu of the satellite’s, providing years of additional movement.
