CAPSTONE Contributes to a Resilient U.S. Space Architecture in Cislunar Space
Westminster, CO — Advanced Space, a leading space tech solutions company, announced today that their Cislunar Autonomous Positioning System Technology Operations and Navigation Experiment (CAPSTONE) mission has successfully operated on-orbit around the Moon for a full year. This milestone puts the company in an elite category logging over 365 days of continuous operations in the cislunar environment. As the first company to operate a commercial satellite at the Moon, Advanced Space has gained valuable insights around cislunar operations that can only come from hands-on experience. (more…)

What has been your favorite project at Advanced Space and why?
This may be a common answer, but I’d have to say CAPSTONE™. It was an incredible opportunity to become the Mission Design Lead for a Moon mission just three years after finishing my undergraduate degree. That role is something I envisioned I’d get to do maybe a decade into my career. This unique opportunity really solidified that I had made the right choice in abandoning grad school plans and moving across the country to join a small company of less than 10 people. It’s also amazing to be part of something much bigger, knowing that CAPSTONE is part of Artemis and is helping to pave the way to get humans back on the surface of the Moon.

Serving as an orbital pathfinder for the Gateway, the Cislunar Autonomous Positioning System Technology Operations and Navigation Experiment (CAPSTONE™) spacecraft has operated successfully for almost 300 days. During that time, the CubeSat has demonstrated its key functions, entering and maintaining its unique orbit — a near rectilinear halo orbit (NRHO) — and operating a peer-to-peer navigation technology that incorporates relative tracking between two vehicles.

For several years now, Advanced Space has analyzed orbital dynamics for the Lunar Gateway. Supporting the Gateway’s Mission Design and Navigation (MDNAV) team, located primarily at NASA’s Johnson Space Center, these analyses have helped inform station requirements; develop concepts of operations; plan for contingencies; and assist with other planning activities. Our experience with operating the CAPSTONE™ mission in the unique near-rectilinear halo orbit (NRHO) environment has enabled us to help NASA understand the best ways to operate spacecraft in that orbit. These results have been shared with the Gateway team and at industry conferences. (more…)
