13:45 PANEL: “The Double Edge Sword Of On-Orbit Servicing: A Blessing Or A Curse?”

Commercial satellite operators are excited about the potential of servicing their satellites once they’re up in space. Satellite servicing is becoming somewhat of a holy grail for the operators and new technologies and advancements are making the dream of on-orbit servicing possible.

By servicing we mean rendezvous and docking without interruption to operations of the client satellite; long-term station-keeping and attitude control; relocation of satellites to different orbital slots or to different orbit; de-orbiting satellites that are at the end of their lives; as well as rescuing and re-orbiting of satellites stranded in incorrect orbits.

However, a technology, which gives, can also be made to take away. Space is no longer a benign environment but rather a contested operational domain. As space becomes more contested and adversaries become increasingly capable of denying others satellite capabilities, on-orbit servicing technologies become increasingly more attractive as a satellite defence.
