Redwire is continuing to enable today’s most ambitious national security space missions through a wide range of mission-critical systems and capabilities.
Today, during a panel at Small Satellite Conference 2023, Redwire announced that it was selected by True Anomaly, a technology company revolutionizing space security and sustainability with fully-integrated hardware and software, to provide navigation technology and space situational awareness cameras for its Jackal autonomous orbital vehicle (AOV).
Under the agreement, Redwire is providing SpectraCam cameras and SpectraTRAC star trackers customized for the Jackal autonomous orbital vehicles (AOVs). Redwire’s SpectraTRAC star tracker and SpectraCam camera will enable relative navigation, object detection, and imaging for Jackal AOVs. The Jackal spacecraft is designed for a wide range of training, test, and Space Domain Awareness missions in low-Earth, geosynchronous, and other orbits.
Redwire’s next-generation SpectraTRAC star tracker is a low-cost, high-performance star tracker that supports civil, commercial, and defense missions with navigation capability. SpectraCAM, a high-resolution Flight Camera engineered for low-Earth orbit applications including docking, navigation, inspection, and situational awareness, will provide high-resolution imaging of select objects of interest for Jackal missions.
From sensors to software, Redwire technology leverages decades of flight heritage to deliver proven space domain awareness capability for civil, commercial and national security space mission applications, including machine vision, optical navigation, science, remote sensing, photogrammetry, inspection, video monitoring and mission documentation.
