ORS TECH 1

NSSDCA/COSPAR ID: 2013-064H

Description

The ORS Tech 1 and 2 (Operationally Responsive Space - Technology) satellites, formerly known as MBD 1 and 2 (Multimission Bus Demonstration), were created by the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL) as a flexible and modular multi-mission nano-satellite spacecraft architecture for low-cost execution of critical missions.

Under the pathfinder Multi-Mission Bus Demonstration (MBD) program, two triple (3U) CubeSat hardware prototypes have been developed. The ORS Tech 1 ans 2 mission are to validate a robust end-to-end system architecture, CONOPS, and key enabling nano-satellite technologies for future missions.
