Hera Systems Licenses Nasa Technology for COTSAT Spacecraft

Hera Systems has signed a licensing agreement to use Nasa technology in its Spacecraft Avionics and Technologies (COTSAT) spacecraft. The licensing deal for two patent pending technologies was signed with Nasa's Ames Research Centre to use them in the development of an ultra-high resolution commercial imaging system. Under the deal, Hera will have access to Nasa's technology to develop COTSAT, a rapid-prototype, low-cost spacecraft to be used in scientific experiments and other technology demonstrations. The ultra-high resolution commercial imaging system will be able to gather the Earth's sub-metre resolution imagery. Hera is planning to launch the system in 2017. The company is also planning to demonstrate and test three advanced payloads of the system in 2017. The deal allows Hera to have unlimited access to Nasa's COTSAT source code related to two pending patents, including modular spacecraft software architecture and low-burden star tracker. The company is already using COTSAT technology, research and components.

NASA to Layoff 200 Workers

Nearly 200 workers at NASAs Michoud Assembly Facility in eastern New Orleans will lose their jobs in January after the maintenance contract for the facility changes hands. It is not yet clear how many jobs the new contractor will keep. Jacobs Technology, the company that now maintains and operates Michoud, notified state workforce officials that it failed to win renewal of its contract with NASA and will eliminate 195 jobs. The layoffs are effective January 31, when the company's contract ends. Syncom Space Services, based in Arlington, Va., will take over management of the facility.
