About SSPD

The Satellite Servicing Projects Division (SSPD) continues the legacy of the five successful Hubble Space Telescope Servicing Mission (1990-2009) and the Satellite Servicing Capabilities Office (2009-2016).

SSPD is advancing the state of the art in robotic and human servicing through the management of servicing missions, the execution of targeted technology development campaigns, and the infusion and transfer of servicing capabilities to government and industry stakeholders.

Through their efforts, SSPD is working to:
  1. Advance the state of robotic servicing technology to enable the routine servicing of satellites that were not designed with servicing in mind.
  2. Position the U.S. to be the global leader in in-space repair, maintenance and satellite disposal.
  3. Help to enable a future U.S. industry for the servicing of satellites.
