The pioneers

Of Small Satellites

Terran Orbital is a leading manufacturer of small satellites primarily serving the United States and Allied aerospace and defense industries. Terran Orbital provides end-to-end satellite solutions by combining satellite design, production, launch planning, mission operations, and in-orbit support to meet the needs of the most demanding military, civil, and commercial customers.

The foundation of the

Tranche 0TM

Operating in low Earth orbit, the Tranche 0 constellation will provide secure high-bandwidth, low-latency data links to enable the initial capability of the SDA’s National Defense Space Architecture. The beyond-line-of-sight tracking, targeting, and communications will dramatically extend U.S. defense options and allow additional coalition and allied partners to eventually bring their capabilities into the network.

Missions

Components

66V Load Controller

The Load Controller is responsible for switching on/off the supply of power to all the modules on the spacecraft, as well as providing primary actuation for torque rods, and gathering temperature data from thermistors not otherwise part of a module.

Flight Computer

The Terran Orbital Flight Computer is the brain of any spacecraft, orchestrating the activities of the spacecraft as it flies around the earth and performs its mission. Every Terran spacecraft has at least one of these modules, and sometimes two, or even three! The system is based around a hybrid FPGA/conventional processor architecture, Dual core, and was designed for expandability, with storage ‘daughter cards’ that allow the system to be tailored to the mission

6U RailPod Dispenser 366mm

The Terran Orbital 6U RailPOD is a rail type satellite deployer capable of carrying a single 6U CubeSat payload and serves as the interface between the CubeSat and Launch Vehicle (LV). The Deployer is a rectangular metallic structure made of high-strength aluminum, an ejection spring mechanism, and an internal rail system that interfaces with the CubeSat. This Terran Orbital 6U RailPOD is configured for 366 mm, with a 400 mm length variant also available.
