Description

This concept video explains DARPA's Phoenix program, which seeks to develop technologies to cooperatively harvest and re-use valuable components from retired, nonworking satellites in GEO (GEO--22,000 miles above the earth). The goal is to demonstrate the ability to create new space systems at greatly reduced cost compared to developing, building and launching brand new replacement satellites.
