Seattle WA (SPX) May 03, 2019
Cloud Constellation Corporation has selected LeoStella to manufacture the SpaceBelt satellite constellation.
Cloud Constellation's SpaceBelt Data Security as a Service (DSaaS) offers secure, global managed network services and cloud data storage in space to enterprise, government and military organizations.
Unlike the low Earth orbit (LEO) mega constellations, SpaceBelt's patented architecture has the distinct advantage that a constellation of only ten satellites are required in LEO which greatly reduces the cost, complexity and time to market.
Seattle-based LeoStella is a state-of-the-art small satellite design and manufacturing company, revolutionizing constellation construction by building smallsats cost-effectively and at scale.
Founded as a joint venture between Spaceflight Industries and Thales Alenia Space, the company was created to meet the growing demand for efficient satellite design and manufacturing for the growing number of constellations. By removing the barriers of building satellite constellations, LeoStella is helping organizations and markets change the world.
Brian Rider, Chief Technology Officer, LeoStella said: "We created LeoStella to enable innovative space constellations and forward-thinking businesses such as Cloud Constellation. The SpaceBelt DSaaS will bring a powerful new capability for global data security. The technology exists to leverage affordable satellites to create the on-orbit cloud and we are very excited to bring our solutions to the SpaceBelt mission."
Cliff Beek, CEO, President of Cloud Constellation Corporation, said: "LeoStella's innovation and engineering solutions have provided us with a sense of confidence that they understand and can achieve our mission.
"It is their forward leaning culture, which is most refreshing. Our teams have meshed well, and there is an ever-present confidence that SpaceBelt will be delivered as envisioned."
