Space

Moog has designed and manufactured components and systems for satellites and launch vehicles for over 60 years. Moog continues to make significant investment in propulsion facilities, metal additive manufacturing, avionics and innovative in-space delivery systems

The Road to the Moon Went Through WNY

The Apollo program was made possible by many contractors and government agencies throughout the United States. There were significant concentrations of effort in many regions, one of which was Western New York between Buffalo, Niagara Falls, and Rochester. The history of aerospace achievement in Western New York is well-known and dates back to the earliest days of flight. Few are aware, however, of the contributions made by Western New York to the early space program, particularly Apollo, but also the Mercury and Gemini programs leading up to it.

The Orbital Maneuvering Vehicle

The Moog Orbital Maneuvering Vehicle (OMV) is a propulsive tug for secondary payload deployment based on the Moog NSSL Secondary Payload Adapter (ESPA) ring. The OMV is designed to launch on NSSL-class launch vehicles (Atlas V, Delta IV, Falcon 9) while supporting up to 1500 kg of secondary payloads with a variety of standard separation systems.

MODULAR ELECTRIC POWER SYSTEM (MEPS)

MEPS allows ultra-capacitors to be connected to a power system to function as an electric accumulator. MEPS is agnostic to the upstream energy system, but has focused its early development leveraging the use of lithium ion batteries. In this form, MEPS is a hybridization of batteries and ultra-capacitors. The intent of architecting a power system in this manner is to optimize the benefits of the individual technologies while maintaining a small form factor and fulfilling the total system need.
