Ben Bowen from Sierra Nevada Corporation’s Satellite and Space Mission Systems, explains how 12U multi-manifest small satellites can be flown on an Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle Secondary Payload Adapter, or ESPA flight system during a reception at Parsons Corporation’s new small satellite integration facility in Torrance, California, Feb. 27, 2020. In February 2019, SMC awarded Parsons a five-year Launch Manifest Systems Integration (LMSI) contract to perform the task of allowing small satellites to hitch a ride as a secondary payload on national security or civil space missions.
