Vector Space Systems has finalized a strategic partnership agreement with ATLAS Space Operations to seamlessly integrate ATLAS' network of capabilities into Vector Space Systems' existing product offerings, diversifying the company's launch tracking capabilities.

As early as 2018, Vector Space Systems will be able to provide a space-to-ground communication network from the Galactic Sky division to its customers through ATLAS LINKS - the world's first mobile, rapidly deployable, and electronically steered array RF ground system that is revolutionizing the space industry.

Designed for communications with both low-earth orbit and deep space missions, and capable of rapid deployment anywhere on the globe - ATLAS LINKS arrays will enable Vector Space Systems to simultaneously track signals over multiple frequencies, effectively eliminating high civil engineering costs associated with the installation of other systems that require expensive antennae and pedestals.

Satellite ground architecture and data services will support Vector Space Systems' launch operations from the ground and in-orbit, transforming satellite telemetry tracking and command systems (TT and C) and ground operations for space startups.

"Our mission to bring affordable and reliable launches for accessing space has never been more critical and in partnership with ATLAS, we look forward equipping entrepreneurs with the resources they need to innovate," said Jim Cantrell, CEO and co-founder of Vector Space Systems.

"By integrating ATLAS Satellite Ground Network capabilities into Vector Space Systems' Galactic Sky division capabilities, we're continuing to advance toward an all-encompassing satellite offering for our customers."

Built around the ATLAS Freedom Platform, ATLAS' proprietary cloud-based solutions employ an advanced combination of ATLAS-owned and cooperative antennas that provide customers with more affordable UHF, S, X, and Ka-band coverage, as well as TT and C. It's faster, stronger, and more reliable connectivity at a mere fraction of the cost.

"Satellite TT and C and ground operations are often the most expensive and difficult to find assets for space innovators," said Sean McDaniel, CEO of ATLAS Space Operations. "We are proud to join forces with Vector to help bring the first unique offering to the market combining satellite TT and C and micro satellite launch operations at a price point never before thought possible.
