Key lessons learned from the ORS TECH and RAVAN missions are being applied to this mission.
CAT mission has been successful in maintaining the desired in-track separation. The CAT spacecraft have never been below the 10-km separation range limit and only exceeded the 150-km separation range limit twice. First due to initial deployment velocity and delayed initiation of drag maneuvering. Second due to a series of untimely safe-mode and command lock-outs.
