Effective Space is pioneering last-mile logistics in space. It deploys and operates a fleet of small SPACE DRONE™ spacecraft that will deliver, position, maintain, monitor and guarantee space assets in orbit and beyond. ‘Phase One’ rollout includes life-extension services to operators of satellites in GEO. Services include station-keeping and attitude-control, relocation, orbit and inclination correction, deorbiting, inspection and ‘bringing into use’ (BIU). The SPACE DRONE™ spacecraft (<400kg, 1x1x1.25m) functions as an external ‘jetpack’ for up to 15 years of service. It safely and accurately performs rendezvous and docking to the host satellite with a patent-pending non-intrusive docking system. The platform will support LEO constellations with active-debris-removal (ADR) and post-mission-disposal (PMD) missions. Long-term services will support space exploration and in-space logistics.
