DARPA Phoenix  DARPA If one part of a satellite... - Wissenschaft und Deutsch (on Hiatus)

DARPA Phoenix 
DARPA

If one part of a satellite dies, the whole thing goes dark. The Phoenix robot harvests abandoned but functional antennas, solar array, and other communications gear from defunct satellites, attaches those components to mini satellites it carries with it, and redeploys the combination as a new unit. It’s the first salvage platform in space.
