About Orbital Sciences Corp.
Orbital Sciences Corporation engages in the development and manufacture of small and medium class rockets and space systems for commercial, military and civil government customers, including the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and other U.S. Government agencies.
Products and Services
The companys products and services are grouped into three business segments: Launch Vehicles; Satellites and Space Systems; and Advanced Space Programs.
Launch Vehicles segment
The Launch Vehicles Segment is involved in developing and producing interceptor launch vehicles, target launch vehicles, and space launch vehicles.
Interceptor Launch Vehicles: The company develops and produces rockets that are used as interceptor launch vehicles for missile defense systems, including interceptor boosters that carry kill vehicles designed to defend against ballistic missile attacks. Pursuant to a contract with Boeing, the company supplies operational and test interceptor boosters for the U.S. Missile Defense Agencys (MDA) Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD) program, for which the company's interceptor boost vehicle, a modified version of Pegasus rocket, is being used as a major operational element in the U.S. national missile defense system. During 2009, the company delivered five GMD boost vehicles.
Target Launch Vehicles: The company designs and produces target launch vehicles used in the development and testing of missile defense systems. Its target launch vehicles include suborbital rockets and their principal subsystems, as well as payloads carried by such vehicles. Various branches and agencies of the U.S. military, including MDA, use its target launch vehicles as targets for defense-related applications, such as ballistic missile interceptor testing and related experiments. These rockets are programmed to simulate incoming enemy missiles. The companys family of targets extends from long-range ballistic target launch vehicles, which include targets for testing MDAs GMD system, to medium- and short-range target vehicles designed to simulate threats to U.S. and allied military forces deployed in overseas theaters. The company has also developed a short-range supersonic sea-skimming target that flies above the oceans surface and is being used by the U.S. Navy.
Space Launch Vehicles: The company develops and produces small-class launch vehicles that place satellites weighing up to 4,000 lbs. into low-Earth orbit, including the Pegasus, Taurus and Minotaur space launch vehicles that are used by commercial, civil government and military customers. Its Pegasus launch vehicle is launched from its L-1011 carrier aircraft to deploy satellites into low-Earth orbit. The Taurus launch vehicle is a ground-launched derivative of the Pegasus vehicle that can carry heavier payloads to orbit. The ground-launched Minotaur launch vehicle family combines Minuteman II and Peacekeeper ballistic missile rocket motors with its Pegasus and Taurus technology.
The company engages in a new product development effort. The company is developing the Taurus II medium-capacity rocket that increases the payload capacity of its space launch vehicles to approximately 12,000 lbs. The company is marketing the vehicle to the U.S. Government and commercial customers.
Satellites and Space Systems segment
The Satellites and Space Systems Segment is involved in developing and producing communications satellites, science and technology satellites, related subsystems, and space technical services.
Communications Satellites: The company designs and manufactures small geosynchronous-Earth orbit (GEO) satellites that provide cable and direct-to-home television distribution, business data network connectivity, regional mobile telephony and other space-based communications services.
Science and Technology Satellites: The companys small- and medium-class low-Earth orbit and other spacecraft are used to conduct space-related scientific research, to carry out interplanetary and other deep-space exploration missions, to enable national security applications, to collect imagery and other remotely-s

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
