SSL Sues Orbital ATK Over Unauthorized Access of Data on NASA Server

SSL sues rival Orbital ATK over theft of trade secrets: lawsuit Reuters

"At least four confidential SSL documents were viewed and distributed by an Orbital ATK employee working at NASA's Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia, where the data is stored as part of an ongoing SSL partnership with the U.S. space agency, according to the complaint filed in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia."

"The documents contain information about SSL's technology for robotic satellite assembly, repair and servicing; research and development efforts; financing and business plans; procurement and performance strategies; customer development; and subcontractor and vendor relationships, the suit said."

Marc's note: Things are heating up in the Orbital ATK / SSL (MDA) commercial battle for satellite servicing. Orbital fired the employee in question but the damage is done. NASA is conducting an investigation. More to follow.
