Motiv has made contributions to dozens of missions. Below are several recent stand-out projects.Learn how we supported these missions and how we can support yours.
Mars 2020 Perseverance Rover
As the Mars 2020 Perseverance Rover explores the red planet, it will use a robotic arm and other hardware developed by Motiv to take samples, record 3D images and take valuable scientific readings.
OSAM-1 Satellite Servicing
NASA’s OSAM-1 mission will locate, connect with and refuel a government-owned satellite. The mission, which uses Motiv’s advanced motion-control components, will explore technologies that allow operators to extend the life spans and versatility of their satellite fleets.
OSAM-2 On-Orbit Servicing, Assembly & Manufacturing
OSAM-2, formerly known as Archinaut, will utilize the xLink™ robotic arm to help activate and position the 3D-printing elements that will manufacture a 60+ foot solar array on orbit, which can generate up to five times the power of traditional solar panels on similarly sized spacecraft.
