Launch-Hardened Deploy and Docking Mechanism (LDDM) is an all-in-one reusable, launch-hardened satellite deployment and re-docking mechanism family that enables on-orbit refueling, satellite upgrades, and inspection/servicing missions for spacecraft. Proven rugged V-band hard capture actuated by a reusable electromechanically driven fastener enables LDDM to launch satellites docked. 
A robust soft-capture mechanism enables repeated separation, berthing, docking, and deployment with large misalignment capability and variable deployment velocities.
