US: Arx Pax has entered into a Space Act Agreement (SAA) with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The purpose of the agreement is to use Arx Pax’s Magnetic Field Architecture (MFA) to create microsatellite capture devices that can manipulate and couple satellites from a distance. Arx Pax and NASA are planning to design a device with the ability to attract one object to another from a distance. According to a spokesperson from the company, the device will draw as well as repel satellites at the same time. This will enable the capability to capture and possibly manipulate microsatellites or other objects without making physical contact with them.
