The OSAM-1 (formerly Restore-L) mission is a robotic servicing mission designed to refuel a Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite. It contains 3 elements: the Flight Element comprised of the OSAM-1 Space Vehicle (SV) and development testbeds, the Ground Element comprised of the systems required to conduct SV operations and the supporting networks and facilities, and the Launch Element comprised of the Launch Vehicle and supporting facilities and services. GSFC is responsible for the design, engineering, development, test and operations of the OSAM-1 Mission through an integrated team at GSFC. The Servicing Payload design, development and SV integration will be conducted at GSFC.
