ATK brings to the ViviSat venture more than 30 years of satellite system experience and a 100% on-orbit satellite mission success record. ATK has operations in 24 states within the US, as well as internationally, with revenues of approximately $4.8 billion.
The U.S. Space team brings more than 100 combined years of senior executive experience in the management, operations, and financing of commercial and military space systems.
