Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp. today announced it will work with NASA to develop a mission concept for demonstrating solar electric propulsion in space under a $600,000 study contract.

Ball said the mission concept studies will identify technology gaps and look to implement technical solutions for transportation using solar electric propulsion systems. NASA will then take the studies and use them to plan and implement a future flight demonstration mission.

“Moving payloads reliably and cost effectively from low Earth orbit to high-energy orbits is critical for deep space human and robotic exploration and relies on the systems engineering expertise Ball is known,” said Cary Ludtke, vice president of Ball’s civil and operational space business unit.
