True Anomaly, Inc. has just opened the GravityWorks spacecraft manufacturing facility in Centennial, Colorado. The 35,000-square-foot facility will use assembly lines to produce a fully tested, mission-ready satellite every five days. According to the company, True Anomaly has received authorizations from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to perform non-Earth imaging (NEI) and demonstrate rendezvous and proximity operations (RPO), respectively. These tests and demonstrations will feature the company’s Jackal autonomous orbital vehicles (AOVs), which will be produced at the new plant.
In a recent quote, True Anomaly CEO Even Rogers said, "The GravityWorks facility—including the patent-pending satellite design, engineering processes and world-class talent—is instrumental in True Anomaly's ability to deliver resilient offerings at scale to help the U.S., its allies, and partners meet continuously evolving space security and sustainability challenges. GravityWorks was built to meet any volume of spacecraft our customers will require and to turn tactical problems into innovative solutions at the powerful intersection of hardware, software, and AI."
