The Orbital maintenance station
Optimising the In-Space Infrastructure
Designed to reflect Lúnasa’s vision: Accelerating the world’s transition to affordable, sustainable, and reliable in-space economy.
VIA is Lúnasa’s market entry platform, a reusable and automated miniature space station, offering very specific maintenance services for satellites in Low-Earth Orbit (LEO).
VIA is capable of transporting 200 kg of satellites and hosting payloads up to 20 kg throughout the mission, where the payloads will be provided with power, housekeeping, attitude control, and raising orbital altitudes to new heights where it has been inaccessible until now for SmallSats.
Our next generation vehicles will be more advanced and located in higher Earth orbits, providing a range of in-orbit services for satellites.
Lúnasa is currently developing an In-Orbit Demonstration (IOD) mission to be launched by late-2023. The mission is designed to de-risk the innovation. Upon completion of the IOD mission, Lúnasa will initiate the commercial launch of VIA.
