Terran Orbital Releases Enhanced Versions of Enterprise Bus

Continuing to set the standards for small satellites

Terran Orbital Corporation (NYSE: LLAP) (“Terran Orbital” or the “Company”), a global leader in satellite-based solutions primarily serving the aerospace and defense industries, today announced two additional configurations of its largest platform offered in the standard product line the Company initially announced in September: Enterprise. The Enterprise-class bus is the point of departure for flat packing requirements carrying up to 24 satellites per launch. It is optimal for large constellations and comes in three standard, yet configurable, configurations: A, B, and C. Each configuration comes standard with Optical Inter-Satellite Link (OISL) functionality and has a large, flat deck optimized for communication and RF payloads. A new power storage system has been designed to reduce weight and increase the power available to the payload. Configuration A is the standard model; configuration B provides additional upgraded power and payload mass representing our most-capable LEO platform to date; and configuration C swaps payload mass for additional redundancy and provides power upgrades ready for MEO and GEO applications.
