Momentus Inc. (NASDAQ: MNTS) (“Momentus” or the “Company”), a U.S. commercial space company that offers satellite buses, transportation, and other in-space infrastructure services, has signed a contract with Aarhus University for transportation and orbital delivery services in late 2024.
Aarhus University will be flying its DISCO-II payload designed to provide climate monitoring. The university’s DISCO-I payload was placed into Low-Earth Orbit during the Vigoride-6 mission that launched in April 2023. DISCO is the Danish Students CubeSat Program.
“DISCO-2 will be the most ambitious student CubeSat mission in Denmark to date and students from three universities will be highly involved in all aspects of the mission,” said Telescope and Satellite manager at Aarhus University and leader of the DISCO-2 mission Mads Fredslund Andersen. “With the successful launch of DISCO-1 earlier this year and DISCO-2 next year, we are looking into a very exciting period for the DISCO program.”
“Momentus has deployed 15 satellites over three missions, including the DISCO-1 payload that hosted a series of student experiments,” said Momentus Chief Commercial Officer Chris Kinman. “Our rideshare missions enable more organizations to participate in the space economy. We’re happy to support Aarhus University and the DISCO initiative that connects future space and science leaders with access to Low-Earth Orbit.”
In addition to rideshare missions, Momentus offers Delta-V delivery for missions requiring precise custom orbits. The Company also provides hosted payload services and its M-1000 satellite bus for customized and dedicated missions.
Momentus is a U.S. commercial space company that offers commercial satellite buses and in-space infrastructure services including in-space transportation, hosted payloads, and other in-orbit services.
