Comprised of the same team that conducted the five successful servicing missions to the Hubble Space Telescope, NASA's Satellite Servicing Capabilities Office (SSCO) was established in 2009 to continue NASA's legacy of satellite servicing and repair.
Through their efforts, SSCO is working to:
- Advance the state of robotic servicing technology to enable the routine servicing of satellites that were not designed with servicing in mind.
- Position the U.S. to be the global leader in in-space repair, maintenance and satellite disposal.
- Help to enable a future U.S. industry for the servicing of satellites.
