SEATTLE, July 13, 2015 – Spaceflight Networks, Spaceflight Industries’ line of business providing cost-effective satellite communications and data services, today announced partnerships with satellite data company Spire Global, Inc. and spacecraft radio providers Tethers Unlimited, BitBeam Inc. and Syrlinks. The partnerships will support Spaceflight Networks as it builds out its “cell phone network for space,” a low-latency data network to meet the communications needs of the burgeoning small-satellite sector.
“The small-satellite revolution requires massive improvements in latency, data throughput and operating costs compared to what is available today,” said Jason Andrews, CEO of Spaceflight Industries. “With Spaceflight Networks, we are building out that enabling infrastructure and are pleased to have Spire, Tethers Unlimited, BitBeam and Syrlinks as key partners in that initiative.”
