The Utility Agent (UA) is a small, refuelable spacecraft of 150 to 250 kg and its function is to perform tele-operated docking to a client spacecraft (CS), enabled by a real time camera signal, which is relayed through the CS or a through a third satellite.

Once it is docked on the client spacecraft it can perform a series of service operations including, inclination correction, relocation, reorbiting, refueling. It can also perform circumnavigation and inspection of a Space Object (SO) . With regards to its positioning it can navigate from a UB to a client spacecraft (one or more) and come back to the UB for refueling.
