Kurs Orbital

Kurs Orbital expands human activities beyond Earth by providing rendezvous and docking technology to start-ups and companies which would like to offer in-orbit servicing or logistics missions, but cannot afford the development time and cost for this technology.

ARCap is a standard module conceived for the aerospace market, which enables any kind of spacecraft to perform such missions in a totally autonomous way, dealing also with non-cooperative targets like space debris, malfunctioning or out-of-fuel spacecrafts.

The algorithms running the ARCap module come from the soviet Kurs rendezvous-acquisition system, used continuously since 1985 and responsible for more than 300 successful dockings in orbit between Soyuz-Progress vehicles, the MIR and the International Space Station.
