Heritage and Quality, Scaled.

We are building the Satellites and constellations of the future

Payloads

Terran orbital has extensive experience designing and integrating mission payloads for a variety of functions. These payloads are primary sensors used to accomplish the mission and vary wildly in their requirements and physical parameters.

Guidance, Navigation, and Control

Guidance, Navigation, and control components include everything you need to point your spacecraft in the direction you want, whether that is at the sun to charge, at the ground to communicate, or out into space for science. In general, gnc components can be broken up into two categories, sensors and actuators, and Terran produces both.

Electrical Power Systems

The electrical power system provides energy for the spacecraft to accomplish its mission, fueling the unique science performed by every spacecraft. The EPS components include both power storage and power generation items.

Command and Data Handling

Command and data handling systems are the core functions of the spacecraft, they let you control the system and communicate with it. Central to that is the flight computer, backed up by a number of radios and other ancillary interfaces.

Dispensers

Terran Orbital designs and produces high quality, mission ready dispensers. These components secure your satellite to the launch vehicle while it is still on the ground, shield it from harmful vibrations while blasting off, and give it a final kick to separate cleanly from the upper stage of the rocket so the mission can begin.

Intrepid Platform

Terran Orbital’s earliest missions used the intrepid platform, building off the work done by the founders at Cal Poly San Luis Obispbo. Intrepid spacecraft utilize the spacecraft exterior panels for most functions, leaving almost the entirety of the interior for payload volume

Endeavour Platform

The Endeavour platform is Terran Orbital’s previous generation of spacecraft hardware.  Endeavour components are highly integrated, allowing extremely compact satellites optimized for the lowest cost, and highest payload volume possible to accomplish a mission.

Testing Is Our Quality

Terran Orbital emphasizes the importance of risk

reduction through rigorous expert analysis and

on-site testing.

 Incoming Inspection

Quality control of Terran Orbital’s approved vendors includes detailed inspection and acceptance testing of incoming parts. In-house inspection and test capabilities include:

  • • Automated Optical Inspection (AOI)
  • • PCB X-Ray Inspection System
  • • HASS / HALT Testing

Integrated
System Testing

To ensure operation in the space environment, in-house environmental test capabilities verify system level performance without requiring the satellite to travel off-site – reducing handling and schedule risk. Capabilities include:

  • Thermal Vacuum Chambers
  • Vibration Tables
  • EMI Chambers
  • Thermal Ambient Chambers

Assembly, Integration, And Test (AI&T)

We use modern tools for issue tracking, inventory management, procedure execution, and test automation that deliver complete traceability, transparency, and comprehensive test coverage at both the sub-system and integrated system level. Reducing schedule and cost does not mean cutting corners; it means optimizing the process to improve both quality and quantity through continuous improvement.
