Partnership with Airborne Systems and Lockheed Martin


​PDG Aviation Services partnered with Airborne Systems and Lockheed Martin to successfully completed a Mid-Air Retrieval (MAR) demonstration test program at West Freugh, SW Scotland on behalf of the UK Space Agency.

The Mid-Air Retrieval (MAR) demonstrates the feasibility of capturing high value space assets prior to ground or water impact.

The MAR technology enables the recovery and reuse of expensive launch vehicle assets such as Rocket Engines, Booster Stages, Avionics Packages, Payload Fairings, Payloads, Aerial Targets, etc, and significantly reduces the cost of space access.
