Momentus seeks to expand international business and partnerships
Momentus Inc., a US commercial space company that plans to offer transportation and other in-space infrastructure services, today announced it will participate in World Satellite Business Week (WSBW) to be held September 12 – 16 and the International Astronautical Congress (IAC) 2022 to be held September 18 – 22, both taking place in Paris, France.
“The challenges and opportunities of the global space economy transcend geographic boundaries on Earth,” said Momentus Chief Executive Officer John Rood. “Reliable last-mile delivery to an array of orbital destinations and solutions for sustainability are key enablers to optimizing space for the benefit of Earth. The Momentus team will be at WSBW and IAC sharing more about our vision for space infrastructure as the foundation for expanding growth in low-Earth orbit and beyond.”
At World Satellite Business Week, John Rood will participate in the “In Space Logistics – The Path to Full Commercialization” panel at 11:35 am CEST on Wednesday, September 14, in the Concorde Room. At IAC, the Momentus business development and technical product team will be onsite and available to meet.
Earlier this year, Momentus conducted the inaugural demonstration mission of its Vigoride orbital transfer vehicle and deployed several payloads for international customers. The Company’s next demonstration mission is targeted for launch in November. Momentus recently signed an agreement with LuxSpace to provide hosted payload services for the Triton-X satellite platform in 2023.
