Electron | OSAM-2

Rocket Lab Ltd | USA
Onenui Station, Mahia Peninsula, New Zealand
Jan. 1, 2022, midnight
Status: To Be Determined
Mission: Unknown

Archinaut One is a mission to demonstrate the ability of small spacecraft to manufacture and assemble spacecraft components in low-Earth orbit. Once it’s positioned in low-Earth orbit, the spacecraft will 3D-print two beams that extend 32 feet (10 meters) out from each side of the spacecraft. As manufacturing progresses, each beam will unfurl two solar arrays that generate as much as five times more power than traditional solar panels on spacecraft of similar size.
