A satellite bus or spacecraft bus is a general model on which multiple-production satellite spacecraft are often based.

The company is a wholly owned subsidiary of Ball Corporation, with primary offices in Boulder and facilities in Broomfield and Westminster in Colorado, with smaller offices in New Mexico, Ohio, Northern Virginia, Missouri, and Maryland. Sears said that effort has taken about five years and cost about $300 million. Lockheed Martin LM-Series Satellite Bus System Nanosatellites can validate emerging technologies at a lower cost and higher risk proﬁle. At left is a top view of the bus. Satellites combine many different materials to make up all of their component parts. Lockheed software systems will also make each bus rapidly reconfigurable, depending on the particular mission need or type of satellite. NIRcam is extremely important to JWST, because it's not only a sensitive infrared camera, but it is also used to adjust the alignment of the main mirror segments. The infrared camera instrument integrated with ISIM passed its thermal tests in early 2016. The Attitude Control Subsystem senses the orientation of the Observatory, maintains the Observatory in a stable orbit, and provides the coarse pointing of the Observatory to the area on the sky that the Science Instruments want to observe. The bus is the infrastructure of the spacecraft, usually providing locations for the payload (typically space experiments or instruments). A satellite bus or spacecraft bus is a general model on which multiple-production satellite spacecraft are often based.
