5. Solstar Space Company
“Solstar Space is the leading commercial space-based connectivity company pioneering the use of persistent communications services for all types of on-orbit assets including satellites, space stations, launch vehicles, and more. We provide an internet connection between spacecraft and payload managers, satellite operators, and enable orbital and suborbital communications for crewed missions.
Our fast, reliable services, space-tested routers, Wi-Fi access points, and hotspots, and satellite space communicators and data relays are being developed to deliver on-orbit persistent connectivity and are supported by 24/7 customer care. These assets are installed on satellites and spacecraft prior to launch to keep crew, spacecraft, and Earth-based satellite operations teams connected.
Solstar is a mobile satellite services (MSS) company founded to provide commercial Internet Protocol (IP) data, local Wi-Fi, and voice communications services for astronauts and things in space. Solstar’s modern space-to-ground communications services use existing and emerging commercial satellite constellation networks. Meaning, Solstar does not need to launch its own satellite constellation and we leverage $billions of satellite networks paid for by others. This makes sense since Solstar and its heritage companies have established suppliers and professionals built over the past 22 years.”
