Starfish Space is developing an on-orbit transportation service to enable the evolving space mission. The service is provided by a small space tug, and is focused on providing value to satellites that are already in orbit. The space tug will fulfill satellite servicing missions that create a new paradigm for satellite operation now, and form transportation infrastructure for the future off-world economy.
Starfish Space’s initial product is safe and efficient rendezvous and proximity operations software. The RPO algorithms are capable of docking using exclusively electric propulsion. This software is key for operations of the company’s eventual space tug, and can also provide value to complementary satellite servicing missions.
