PacSci EMC has successfully launched its own on-orbit technology demonstrator satellite named PACSCISAT. The Chandler-based company planned to conduct payload tests to prove the performance of several of its commercial space technologies once the satellite reached orbit.
The mission was done to give the company’s customers additional assurance and confidence that an electronic controller and propulsion system were able to work as specified in the harsh space environment.
PACSCISAT was launched in late June on the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle flight C38) from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in India. Watch the video here.
