ViviSat Remote Sensing License Approved

BELTSVILLE, Md., November 25, 2015 — ViviSat LLC announced today that the Commercial Remote Sensing Regulatory Affairs Office of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, an agency of the Department of Commerce, has granted ViviSat a license to provide space based remote sensing on up to 10 of its Mission Extension Vehicles (MEVs).

ViviSat’s MEV will utilize these remote sensing capabilities to visually image its clients’ satellites during rendezvous and docking operations while providing on-orbit life extension services. The MEVs will operate in geostationary orbit, where many satellites can benefit from life extension services. ViviSat is the first company to receive a license of this type as part of the on-orbit servicing mission.

Craig Weston, ViviSat Chief Executive Officer, said “Receipt of our NOAA license is a key milestone along the road to providing on-orbit commercial servicing of satellites. NOAA’s licensing is a concrete example of the U.S. government enabling innovative, next generation commercial initiatives in space. ViviSat is pleased to be pioneering this new era for the space industry.”
