Multiple hosted payloads destined for GEO orbit.


Multiple payloads including Earth observation, scientific experiments and bring-into-use (BIU) services at Ku, Ka and V/Q frequency bands.

Demonstrating Infinite Orbits advanced autonomous vision-based navigation software, a major step toward our GEO life-extension mission.

Utilizing the ENPULSION NANO AR³ thruster – which is the first ENPULSION thruster with vectoring capabilities to be used in GEO. 


Orbit Guard #1 has finally embarked on its trajectory shift! Currently drifting under the GEO arch since November 16th, 2023, toward its first mission-dedicated orbital slot, the servicer should commence its first in-orbit services mission by December 10th.

Latest Update: As of November 20, 2023, at 10:00:00 UTC, Orbit Guard #1 proudly reports a semi-major axis of 42,026 kilometers and a longitude of 124.4 degrees—testaments to its unwavering advancement toward its mission objectives.

Celebrating its 1-year anniversary since launched by SpaceX's Falcon Heavy on May 1st, 2023. This past year, Orbit Guard #1 successfully fulfilled all its tech demonstration and commercial missions and has paved the way for our future projects. In numbers :
