NASA Goddard Signs Exclusive Patent License With Millennium Space Systems

The Innovative Technology Partnerships Office (ITPO) at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland , announced the signing of an exclusive production license with Millennium Space Systems of El Segundo, California. 

This exclusive license allows Millennium Space Systems to produce and market NASA Goddard's patented Demisable Integrated Reaction Wheel Assembly (DIRWA) for satellite platforms that can range in mass from a few hundred pounds to several thousand pounds. Made from aluminum, which has a low melting point, the demisable momentum wheels do not require controlled re-entry into Earth's atmosphere, thus reducing the costs for satellite end of life mitigation scenarios.
