Tyvak International SRL to Participate in NASA DART Impact Event

NASA’s Double Asteroid Redirection Test, otherwise known as DART, will demonstrate and test asteroid deflection by kinetic impactor. This means the spacecraft will deliberately collide with a target asteroid, Dimorphos, the orbiting Moonlet in a binary asteroid system known as Didymos, to change its speed and path. The Didymos asteroid system poses no threat to Earth, making it the perfect test. If successful, DART’s kinetic impact method could be used in the future if a hazardous asteroid on a collision course with Earth were discovered. Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory developed and operates DART for NASA.

Milani is a satellite developed by Tyvak International, devoted to the visual inspection and dust detection of the Didymos asteroid following DART impact. Milani will be launched aboard ESA’s Hera mothercraft in 2024. A critical component of the Hera planetary defense mission, Milani will be one of ESA’s first deep-space nanosatellites. Milani will also be one of the first nanosatellites ever to orbit an asteroid. Tyvak International is responsible for Milani’s design, build, and mission operations.
