Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd (SSTL) plans to fly a dedicated satellite for hosted payloads in 2015. This OTB (Orbital Test Bed) is based on the SSTL-150 and will provide the opportunity for Surrey’s Hosted Payload customers to benefit from reliable, low-risk access to orbit, to rapidly and cost-effectively space-qualify new technology, gain flight heritage, acquire mission experience, generate in-orbit data and provide mission continuity capability, without the need to procure a costly dedicated launch. The mission is planned to last five years.
