DARPA, NASA join hands to design refueling satellites
from Geospatial World
The Department of Defense's research and development arm — DARPA — is teaming up with NASA to create a new generation of satellites whose job will be to maintain existing ones. The new satellites could extend the lives of billion-dollar satellites and fix minor maintenance issues, problems that are currently not possible. Such service stations, however, could also interfere with the satellites of adversaries.
