Ball designed and built the Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS-1) spacecraft bus and the Ozone Mapping and Profiler Suite instrument, integrated all five of the spacecraft’s instruments, performed satellite-level testing and provided launch support.
Ball Aerospace delivered OLI for Landsat 8, which launched in 2013, and OLI-2 for Landsat 9, which launched in 2021.
Ball Aerospace is developing the high-performance advanced spectrometer instrument for MethaneSAT which will locate and measure methane emissions across the globe.
Careers at Ball Aerospace
From revolutionary space missions and world-renowned sensors to data and cyber solutions, Ball Aerospace gives its employees unique opportunities to work on cutting-edge missions that help our customers learn about our planet, protect lives and build a better tomorrow.
Together with grant funding from NASA and DARPA, we have designed, built and validated multiple patented versions of the Optical Autocovariance Wind Lidar (OAWL) system.
Environmental Intelligence & Sustainability
Our goal is to deliver aerospace missions that study climate, air quality, biodiversity and weather/land imaging to inform science and policy that advance social and environmental justice across the planet.
Ball Aerospace designed, built and tested the Ozone Mapping and Profiler Suite (OMPS) instrument, which provides critical information on the health of the Earth’s ozone layer.
Ball Aerospace has developed a design for a compact scatterometer that leverages advances in low power, miniaturized radar electronics, software defined radio (SDR)-based digital signal processors and lightweight, deployable mesh antennas called the Ball Operational Weather Instrument Evolution – Compact Scatterometer (BOWIE-S).
Ushering in a new generation of space weather observing satellites, the Space Weather Follow On-Lagrange 1 (SWFO-L1) mission will launch in 2025 and facilitate early warnings for destructive space weather episodes.
Ball Aerospace is leveraging decades of phased array antenna experience to quickly and cost-effectively deliver critical weather data to decision makers in the weather and defense communities.
Ball Aerospace is responsible for building the spectrometer and telescope on NASA’s Tropospheric Emission: Monitoring of Pollution (TEMPO).
Weather & Environment
From enabling more accurate weather forecasts to delivering insightful observations of our planet, we provide decision makers the information they need to protect what matters most: you, your family and our nation.
We are the prime contractor for the Weather System Follow-On Microwave (WSF-M) mission, responsible for developing and integrating the entire microwave system, including the instrument, spacecraft and ground system software.
