SpaceDev (OTCBB: SPDV) has been awarded a contract from the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), in response to the Operationally Responsive Space Payload Technology Broad Agency Announcement. The award is for the preliminary design of the Combined Optical, Radio, Radar Instrument (CORRI), designed for a small satellite payload application. CORRI integrates three independent capabilities into a single instrument suite: high resolution optical/IR imagery, high-gain broadband RF up/downlink and sensitive proximity radar.

“This program furthers our long-standing relationship with NRL in support of the Operationally Responsive Space Effort,” said Mark Sirangelo, SpaceDev’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Our past contributions have included providing key technologies for the groundbreaking Clementine and STEX small-sat missions. We believe the CORRI payload will prove enabling for microsats. This program builds on our design advances in instrument packaging to provide a smaller, very capable package with significant utility for ORS missions. The CORRI design will be matured from previous work done for the Air Force Research Laboratory.”
