Open Cosmos, Addvalue to Provide Continuous LEO Connectivity to Satellite Constellations

LOGAN, Utah, 8 August 2018 (Open Cosmos PR) — Space mission provider Open Cosmos and satellite communication service provider Addvalue have announced the signature of a key partnership to provide continuous communication and “data-burst as-a-service” to constellation-based remote sensing and IoT businesses.

The agreement will allow Open Cosmos’s nanosatellites to stay in continuous communications with their operation centre on the ground, thereby enabling mission tasking and mission data delivery in near real time. The combination of light weight, small form factor, and a low cost system also makes it perfectly suited for carrying out telemetry, tracking, and command (TT&C) communications, mission tasking, trouble-shooting and restoring operations.
