Berlin, Germany (SPX) Mar 26, 2024

In a landmark partnership, Aerospacelab and Xona Space Systems have committed to a collaboration that will significantly impact the satellite navigation sector. This alliance aims to drive forward the development and deployment of cutting-edge satellite technology, combining Aerospacelab's expertise in satellite design, manufacturing, and operations with Xona's innovative navigation solutions.

Aerospacelab will utilize its Versatile Satellite Platform (VSP) to develop and launch Xona Space Systems' forthcoming navigation satellite, in addition to assisting in obtaining the necessary operator licenses and supporting launch operations over a two-year period. Xona, in turn, will supply the Position, Navigation and Timing (PNT) payload for Aerospacelab's satellite platform.

The partnership highlights Aerospacelab's versatility in accommodating various payloads and its proficiency in satellite systems integration, aiming to offer bespoke satellite solutions to its clientele.

Tina Ghataore, Aerospacelab's Chief Strategy and Revenue Officer, elaborated on the partnership's significance, "This collaboration exemplifies how Aerospacelab and Xona can unite to pioneer new technological advancements and hasten development, pushing the boundaries of satellite navigation. We are thrilled to contribute to Xona's mission by not only constructing their navigation satellite but also by facilitating assembly, integration, and testing at our new facilities in the US. We look forward to supporting Xona's vision for a substantial expansion of their satellite fleet."

Tyler Reid, Co-founder and CTO of Xona Space Systems, underscored the collaboration's synergistic potential. "The upcoming mission with Aerospacelab presents an exciting opportunity to leverage live sky capabilities through Xona PULSAR," Reid stated. "By integrating our navigation payload expertise with Aerospacelab's proven satellite platforms and commitment to a swift and cost-effective delivery, we aim to fast-track innovations in the global navigation satellite system landscape."
