Success Stories: ISPA

ATA’s Inertially Stable Platforms are a Success

ATA delivered eight (8) space-qualified Inertially Stable Platforms for laser communications applications.  Our ISPA Team performed all assembly and integration  as well as environmental (vibration and thermal) testing for the units.  We achieved a high Technology Readiness Level (TRL) with a low-risk, mature, and manufacturable design.

ATA’s Inertially Stable Platforms leverage our decade-long Optical IRU technology advances and multiple U.S. patents, and utilize our space-qualified ARS’s and Actuators.  We delivered the units to our government customer for integration with an optical system and gimbal.
