ATLAS and Aevum Partner for USAF’s ASLON-45 LEO Mission

ATLAS Space Operations is partnering with Aevum, Inc. for the The Agile Small Launch Operational Normalizer (ASLON)-45 space lift mission.

The partnership expands on the existing collaboration between the companies with the $4.9 million ASLON-45 mission, which will provide LEO orbital launch services to the Department of Defense (DoD) Space Test Program and other government agencies to help the agency improve their real-time threat warnings.

ATLAS’ Freedom™ Ground Network currently has 31 operational and planned antennas placed around the world that forms the network that will complement Aevum’s scalable launch service, which enables autonomous lift vehicles to launch from virtually any runway in the world and not be limited to range.

This combination of services gives the partners and their customers global accessibility to space operations. As Aevum already uses ATLAS for telemetry, tracking, and command (TT&C), launch support to post-launch support will be a simple transition for customers and will also lower the cost of smallsat launches.

The Agile Small Launch Operational Normalizer-45 (ASLON-45) is a USAF mission that will consist of multiple 3U and larger U.S. government cubesats to LEO at a 45 degree inclination.

Sean McDaniel, CEO and Co-Founder of ATLAS, said this partnership will push the envelope of capabilities that are available to the space community. Beyond the ASLON-45 mission, ATLAS and Aevum are looking forward to conducting many successful launches and continuing to empower global access to space.

Jay Skylus, Founder and CEO of Aevum, added that vertical integration may reduce execution risk but often heightens cost and technology development risks. The company’s choice to integrate with ATLAS for ground communications provides the firm’s customers with more benefits and robust services.

For all involved in the satellite and space industry and the various market segments that enhance these dynamic environments, the 2020 SmallSat Symposium is invaluable.

The 2020 SmallSat Symposium begins on February 3, 2020, with workshops on the first day. Then the Conference continues from February 4 to 6 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California, in the heart of Silicon Valley.

The SmallSat Symposium is hosted by Satnews Publishers which, since 1983, has been a provider of satellite news, media and events. This information packed forum enables you and your company to secure a larger portion of market share as well as to take a step into the next stage of your company’s, or organization’s, growth.

The personal connections at the SmallSat Symposium enable attendees to network with established organizations, subject-matter experts as well as ‘New Space’ entrants.

The SmallSat Symposium will focus on the daily changes in new technologies and the business environment that is shaping the implementation of SmallSat constellations, SmallSat launchers, the challenges facing the SmallSat developer and actors as well as the enormous benefits of these advanced technologies that will benefit our world.

This event attracts more than 100 diverse speakers, all of whom possess deep industry experience. Additionally, numerous opportunities exist to mingle and network with peers while enjoying exceptional, complimentary meals and refreshment breakfast.
