Sidus Space Inc. (NASDAQ: SIDU), a pioneer in the Space and Defense-as-a-Service satellite sector with a keen focus on manufacturing mission-critical hardware, providing multi-disciplinary engineering services, satellite design, production, launch planning, mission operations and in-orbit support, has today expressed delight in announcing the signing of a pivotal service agreement with Leaf Space. Known for its strong foothold in the ground segment as-a-service (GSaaS) market, Leaf Space's contribution will add significant value to Sidus Space's growth strategy.

This alliance underscores a critical milestone for Sidus Space in its continuous endeavor to expand its ground station network and widen the reach of its Earth Observation (EO) data to existing and potential markets globally.

The incorporation of Leaf Space's revolutionary autonomous scheduler technology will allow Sidus Space to provide further refined and scalable solutions to accommodate the dynamic needs of its expanding customer base. As per the agreement terms, Sidus Space will be bestowed with enhanced access to Leaf Space's rapidly growing ground station network.

The collaboration will enable Sidus Space to integrate an additional 17 ground stations located strategically around the globe, encompassing 13 sites across Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand. This is set to markedly reduce latency and boost the overall quality of service that Sidus Space offers to its clients.

Alongside the alliance with Leaf Space, Sidus also boasts coverage and infrastructure agreements with industry giants like Kongsberg Satellite (KSAT), and Atlas Space Operations, reinforcing its market positioning and wide network coverage.

Carol Craig, the trailblazing Founder and CEO of Sidus Space, expressed her enthusiasm about this partnership, saying, "We are thrilled to execute this agreement with Leaf Space, a trusted name in ground station services. By harnessing Leaf Space's expanding ground station network, Sidus is projected to deliver high-resolution EO coverage, and fortify analysis in vital sectors like climate change, food security, and energy supply."

This strategic collaboration with Leaf Space aligns perfectly with Sidus Space's commitment to 'Bringing Space Down to Earth'. It further consolidates the company's leadership position in the rapidly evolving Space and Defense As-a-Service industry.
