SSPI Video

Video Caption: For decades, skilled engineers and technicians have been building satellites designed for unique missions and making them one at a time. They have delivered 1 or 2 dozen per year, each with a high price tag and each designed to operate for decades in high orbit around earth. But the business of space is changing, demanding hundreds and even thousands of satellites in record time. To handle it all, the assembly line has come to satellite manufacturing – and nothing will ever be the same again.
