The National Air & Space Administration awarded the next phase of funding to Space Systems Loral, a spacecraft systems provider, modifying their contract to continue work on the Dragonfly on-orbit satellite assembly program.

The partnership between NASA and SSL intends to create a semiautonomous robotic system to assemble satellites in space. The software to run the program was designed to work with current spacecraft equipment and platforms.
