Innovative Space Solutions

Extending the Lifespan of Critical Space Assets

“The best way to get to the future is to invent it”

The SAM spacecraft is equipped with the tools, technologies, and techniques needed to extend satellites’ lifespans – even those not originally designed to be serviced. The technology demonstrates – the first of its kind in Earth’s expanding space orbits – will create a carefully curated suite of satellite servicing technologies. Capabilities include autonomous satellite rendezvous, refueling, and satellite repositioning. Once proven in space, SAM’s technologies will reduce or eliminate the need for replacing dormant satellites.

Satellite Augmentation (SAM) is an American aerospace company founded by David Green and is a privately owned company. Its headquarters is in Tampa, Florida, United States.

 

Founded to develop spacecraft and an Innovative approach to new technologies and cost-effective space flight services, the company now focuses on designing and developing concept craft and prototype fabrication processes for spacecraft. It is known for its unconventional design approach.

Satellite Augmentation, LLC (hereinafter referred to as “SAM”) is poised for rapid growth in the Aerospace industry. Our Patented SAM System is a revolutionary and novel approach for extending a satellite’s lifespan by refueling, expanding power, and restoring communication to dormant satellites, the ability to reenergize a satellite in orbit with little to no mission impact. In addition, the SAM System can perform a controlled de-orbit, bringing a dormant satellite out of orbit safely via a controlled burn.

Currently, per the UCS-tracked satellite database, there are 8261 individual satellites in orbit. The ability to reenergize a satellite in orbit, with little to no mission impact, will enable both the Government and the Commercial space industry with the ability to extend the life of their most critical space assets. SAM offers a cost-effective, universal method, to accomplish the latter. By utilizing industry standards, this novel idea can quickly move into a proof-of-concept stage and be followed with a viable concept that can be transitioned to the end-user within an accelerated period. In addition to the fueling capabilities, The SAM System has the expanded capability to supply power and communication to the dormant satellite and allows real estate for additional science.

Industry Overview. The Aerospace industry in the United States currently generates $909 billion in annual sales. Annual revenue for the regional market where the business is located is estimated at $19 billion.

The Satellite Augmentation Module (SAM) applications can be grouped into four categories:

1. Orbit correction:

a. Station-keeping: maneuvering satellites to maintain their nominal position or track.
b. Rescuing emergency capture and insertion of stranded satellites into desired orbits.

2. Collision risk mitigation:

a. Debris removal: removing space debris from highly populated regions.
b. Satellite retirement: moving dysfunctional satellites to “graveyard” altitudes or deorbiting them.

3. On-demand maneuvers:

a. Military: providing flexible and unpredictable relocation of US military satellites.
b. Civil: changing the location of a satellite due to a shift in the market or scientific interest.

4. The SAM System can be used to assess the current position, orientation, and operational status of satellites.

Proposed SAM Mission Scenarios
The following table lists the major problems that could be mitigated using the SAM System along with their corresponding mission scenarios.
