The Satellite Servicing Capabilities Office (SSCO) was established in 2009 to continue NASA's 30-year legacy of satellite servicing and repair. Building upon twenty years' experience servicing the Hubble Space Telescope, SSCO devotes its efforts to:

  1.  Advancing the state of robotic servicing technology to the point where America can routinely service satellites never designed to be serviced
  2. Positioning America to be a global leader in on-orbit repair, maintenance and satellite disposal
  3. Supporting the development of a U.S. industry for spacecraft servicing

Ben Reed has been with NASA for 13 total years, with six as a contractor and seven as a civil servant. I spent the first 12 as the lead Materials Engineer for the Hubble Space Telescope, and the most recent year as the Deputy Project Manager for the Robotic Refueling Mission. Currently Reed is SSCO Deputy Project Manager.
