Our SNAFD team is navigating the OSIRIS-REx spacecraft, NASA’s third New Frontiers mission, to a rendezvous with the near-Earth asteroid Bennu. Our engineers will then be tasked with carefully “flying in formation” with it for about a year to study the surface and shape of the carbonaceous asteroid. Then, KinetX engineers will carefully guide the spacecraft down towards the surface to capture a sample of material to be returned to Earth in 2023 for further study.
