EaglePicher to Manufacture Batteries for Mission Extension Vehicle

EaglePicher to Manufacture Batteries for Mission Extension Vehicle

JOPLIN, Mo.,Nov. 14, 2016/PRNewswire/ -- Orbital ATK has announced they are working on the first space Commercial Servicing Vehicle (CSV) for its MEV-1 (Mission Extension Vehicle) program.

This CSV will take control of the attitude and propulsion of an orbiting spacecraft and provide a servicing mission in order to extend the life of the satellite. In orbit, this CSV is expected to have a minimum lifespan of 15 years and will have the ability to service multiple satellites. It has a design similar to Orbital ATK's GEOstar, and will feature the ability to dock and undock using the existing features on customers' spacecraft.

MEV Battery

The MEV will have the ability to extend the mission life of multiple satellites during its 15 year lifetime. This launch is scheduled for late 2018, with the vision to create a fleet of deployed MEVs to service both government and commercial GEO satellites.

For powering of the MEV, Orbital ATK has chosen EaglePicher to provide the program's flight proven batteries.  EPT's batteries will use GS Yuasa's LSE110 Lithium Ion Cells, providing the capacity and voltage required to support the MEV power needs.

"EaglePicher is pleased to join forces with GS Yuasa to manufacture a battery for this cutting-edge technology", saidRon Nowlin, Vice President and General Manager of Defense and Aerospace at EaglePicher, "This could very well be the next big market for commercial space, and we are proud to be part of it."
