Deployed Resources keeps staff on-site to operate, clean, and maintain its structures so the customer never has to worry about them. For long-term contracts, equipment is upgraded as the company improves its manufactured products.

"The life cycle of the equipment they were buying was determined by our project managers and government engineers to be 100 percent, based on our constant maintenance program," he said.

Battlefield commanders have long wanted satellites that can be assembled and launched rapidly. Now they have that capability with the plug-and-play Modular Space Vehicle (MSV) delivered
The MSV is the first open-systems spacecraft bus that supports a top priority of launching smaller, less expensive satellites in a matter of weeks for short-term missions-a capability commonly referred to as "responsive space."
The MSV bus has the flexibility to operate in several orbits (low Earth, medium Earth, and geosynchronous); be launched from a variety of vehicles; accommodate payloads for radar imaging, missile warning, military communications, and weather missions; and perform in orbit anywhere from one to seven years-or more.
Rapid development capabilities and expertise developed under MSV have been incorporated into the company's Eagle line of spacecraft bus products as MSV/Eagle-lM.
