The DARPA Launch Challenge aims to fundamentally shift military space capabilities to enable on-demand, flexible, and responsive launch of small payloads. Three competitors successfully completed the qualification phase and will attempt to launch to low-Earth orbit from two different U.S. locations within a matter of weeks. Teams will receive notice of the first launch site a few weeks prior to launch and exact details on the payload and intended orbit just days before launch. DARPA is targeting both launches for early 2020.

DARPA’s Tactical Technology Office (TTO) is hosting a Proposers Day to provide information to potential applicants on the structure and objectives of the new Consortium for Execution of Rendezvous and Servicing Operations (CONFERS). Through CONFERS, DARPA aims to establish an industry/government forum composed of experts from throughout the space community. Participants would leverage best practices from government and industry to research, develop, and publish non-binding, consensus-derived technical and safety standards for on-orbit servicing operations. In doing so, the program would provide a clear technical basis for definitions and expectations of responsible behavior in outer space.

DARPA’s Tactical Technology Office is hosting a Competitors Day and webcast to provide information to potential applicants on the structure and objectives of the DARPA Launch Challenge. The goal of the Challenge is to promote rapid access to space through frequent, flexible, and responsive launch. In late 2019, qualified teams will compete for prizes, with a top prize of $10 million.

The Tactical Technology Office is holding a Proposers Day meeting to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of the new Robotic Servicing of Geosynchronous Satellites (RSGS) program and to facilitate teaming. The principal objective of RSGS is to create a dexterous robotic operational capability in Geosynchronous Orbit (GEO) that can both provide increased resilience for the current U.S. space infrastructure and be the first concrete step toward a transformed space architecture with revolutionary capabilities. A robotic servicing vehicle comprised of a robotic payload and a spacecraft bus will be jointly developed by DARPA, and the partner team selected. The long-term vision of the RSGS program is to enable a persistent, reliable, cost-effective cooperative robotic servicing capability in GEO, beginning with the robotic servicer developed under the RSGS program and operated by a commercial entity.
