Congratulations to Satellogic

posted Jun 5, 2016, 6:39 AM by Doug Sinclair
On May 30 Satellogic successfully launched the first two satellites of the Aleph-1 constellation, Fresco and Batata, on a CZ-4B out of China.  These spacecraft are notable in that they carry the first RW3-0.06 reaction wheels built under license.  Sinclair Interplanetary transferred the technology to Satellogic, and these parts were made in Uruguay.

By licensing proven designs to constellation makers we can reduce the satellite cost and keep Sinclair Interplanetary focused on innovation instead of serial production.
