Driven by its mission to bring the world online, Astranis is taking on one of humanity’s most important challenges by building the next generation of smaller, lower-cost telecommunications satellites. The company plans to solve the world’s connectivity problem with constellations of Low-Earth Orbiting satellites. Astranis’ first satellite was launched in March 2018. The successful launch and reliable transmission have since demonstrated the efficacy of the company’s approach. At the core Astranis’ next generation satellite is market leading software-defined radio technology.
