Ball Aerospace Green Propellant Mission to test new thermal insulation

NASA’s Green Propellant Infusion Mission (GPIM) has been selected to test an advanced form of thermal insulation, called integrated multi-layer insulation (IMLI) that could become standard on future satellites and cryogenic subsystems. Validating this new insulation in space will help NASA build the technology required for long human spaceflight missions. Under a subcontract from Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp., Quest Thermal Group LLC will manufacture the new insulation that will fly aboard the 2015 GPIM mission.

Exelis delivers critical GPS satellite simulation software

Exelis successfully completed factory acceptance testing for the Global Positioning System (GPS) III navigation payload simulator software. Developed by Exelis, the software will simulate the behavior of GPS signals in space, which will be used for testing the U.S. Air Force's next generation GPS ground station known as the operational control system (OCX). The simulator will be integrated into the Raytheon-developed GPS System Simulator (GSYS) within OCX.
