U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) executives needed an operational satellite system in support of Operationally Responsive Space (ORS). They found their system at Goodrich Corp. in Charlotte, N.C.

Engineers at Goodrich’s ISR Systems facility in Danbury, Conn., have a DoD contract to manufacture and integrate the ORS Sat-1 satellite to support ORS–a national security spacewide community DoD effort to deliver space capabilities that benefit the warfighter. Executives at Goodrich Corp., in turn, have partnered with ATK Space Systems in Herndon, Va., on the ORS Sat-1 project. ATK will provide the satellite bus, or spacecraft vehicle platform.
