Satellite Repair


Discusses satellite repair and its potential for profitable investment

  • technicians commute from LEO to geosynchronous to perform repair work and refueling
  • lower initial equipment costs because parts don't have to be specified with an MBTF greater than the life expectancy of the satellite
  • lower insurance rates since successful operation is much more likely with on-site repair possible
  • reduced operating costs for satellites
  • expand satellite communication facilities through refurbishment and reconstruction of existing hardware
  • new design options where final assembly and alignment is performed on-site by skilled workers

This subject has recently been discussed in trade journals and is under investigation by NASA and other companies.
