Small to large missions
Our spacecraft line includes: BCP 100, a perfect small satellite, offering rapid response to meet mission requirements; BCP 300, ideal for small operational and technology demonstration missions; BCP 2000, offering quick re-targeting and greater agility for Earth remote-sensing payloads; and BCP 5000, providing increased power, stability, agility, and data storage and transmission. The BCP 5000 spacecraft can reorient a satellite over a desired collection area in 4-5 seconds, compared to the typical 30-45 second timeframe. This agility allows for rapid targeting unmatched in the industry.
