SAN JOSE, Calif.–Momentus Inc. (NASDAQ: MNTS) (“Momentus” or the “Company”), a U.S. commercial space company that offers transportation and other in-space infrastructure services, announced that Chief Executive Officer John Rood will participate in the Morgan Stanley 5th Annual Space Summit taking place on December 6, 2022, in New York City.
“Economies of scale from larger launch vehicles and the concurrent effects of satellite miniaturization are driving increasingly affordable access to space”
Mr. Rood will participate in the Space Infrastructure – To the Moon and Back and Everything in Between panel beginning at 2:15 p.m. ET. Additionally, Mr. Rood will host meetings with institutional investors, which can be arranged through your Morgan Stanley representative.
“Economies of scale from larger launch vehicles and the concurrent effects of satellite miniaturization are driving increasingly affordable access to space,” said Rood. “As a result, the number of satellites in space is growing rapidly. The last-mile transportation and payload-hosting services that Momentus offers its customers, and the in-orbit maintenance, refueling and de-orbiting services that Momentus plans to offer, will enable these satellites to conduct their intended missions, including Earth observation, communications, Internet of Things, and missions performed by the Department of Defense, such as space situational awareness.”
Momentus launched its inaugural mission in May 2022 and has deployed eight customer satellites, including seven from its Vigoride Orbital Service vehicle and one from a third-party deployment system. The Company’s second demonstration mission is targeted to launch in December. The mission priorities include hosting a customer payload for Caltech, delivering a CubeSat to orbit for Qosmosys, and testing Vigoride’s performance in space, particularly related to its Microwave Electrothermal Thruster (MET) propulsion that uses water as a propellant. The non-toxic water propellant enables simpler, safer, and less expensive operations on Earth, and more sustainable in-space transportation services.
Momentus’ Chief Executive Officer John Rood will participate in the Space Infrastructure – To the Moon and Back and Everything in Between panel that will be moderated by Kristine Liwag, Aerospace and Defense Analyst, Morgan Stanley.
Date: Tuesday, December 6th – 2:15-2:55 p.m. Eastern Time
