ATLAS Space Operations provides communications services for Space 2.0. ATLAS was founded on the ideal of providing affordable access to space for all, at the highest possible level of service. By moving hardware to the cloud and utilizing the revolutionary ATLAS Freedom™ Software Platform we allow our customers to gather information from space for use on the ground. Get started doing what you do best, build your satellite – let us worry about the rest

BridgeSat’s mission is to speed the adoption of optical communications systems by providing operators with a full turnkey solution that seamlessly connects satellites and high-altitude unmanned vehicles to the ground, and accommodates accelerating demand for accurate and frequent data collection from LEO satellites. Designed to either augment existing RF systems or provide a primary downlink channel, BridgeSat’s solution includes mission analysis, upfront design work, delivery and integration of space terminals, and access to a ground network that provides delivery of the operator’s data directly from their satellite or UAV to their server.

HawkEye 360 is developing a new, space-based global intelligence network that will use radio frequency (RF) technology to help monitor transportation across air, land and sea and assist with emergencies.

HawkEye 360’s constellation of small satellites in low Earth orbit (LEO) will collect information on specific radio signals worldwide to provide high-precision radio frequency mapping and analytics that can be customized to clients’ needs.

LeoSat Enterprises is launching a low-earth-orbit satellite constellation which will provide the first commercially available, business grade, extremely high-speed and secure data service worldwide.  With up to 108 low-earth-orbit communications satellites in the constellation interconnected through laser links, LeoSat is creating an optical backbone in space which is about 1.5 times faster than terrestrial fiber backbones and without the need for any terrestrial touchpoints. The LeoSat constellation will provide high-speed, low-latency and highly secure communications and bandwidth for business operations in the telecom backhaul, Energy, Maritime, Government and international business markets. Launch of the constellation is expected in 2019

RBC Signals is an early stage multi-national company disrupting the commercial space sector with an innovative model for real-time delivery and processing of data from satellites in Low Earth Orbit. RBC Signals uses a "sharing economy" business model, offering global ground station infrastructure as a service based on the excess capacity of existing assets, to provide low latency, high bandwidth, and TT&C communication services at commercially affordable prices.

Ripple Aerospace is a new space rocket company developing oceanic launch technology. Our goal is to bring to market a scalable, medium-lift, low cost launch system able to deliver payloads on an unconstrained launch schedule. Our technology leverages a modified ballast system to enable launch system transportation, fueling, and vertical launch directly from the ocean, no infrastructure required. Ripple’s technology can significantly reduce launch costs, enable unconstrained launch capabilities, and is capable of launching in any maritime environment throughout the world.

TGV Rockets And Propulsion Systems:  TGV is a merchant supplier of liquid bipropellant propulsion systems to the small satellite and small satellite launcher market. 

With Proprietary design tools and patents we will expand Electrocycle engine technology into the emerging New Space sector.

Tri-D Dynamics is an advanced manufacturer of rocket engine components, utilizing patent-pending innovations in fabrication and assembly to drastically reduce the time and cost of creating engine parts.  The space industry is approaching a point of exponential growth but the infrequency of rocket launches, due to manufacturing complexity, cost, and timelines, is stifling the potential. Engines are a critical path part due to traditionally being the most difficult, timely, and costly components to create. Tri-D Dynamics solves this issue with its proprietary C-RED additive manufacturing technology that reduces engine manufacturing time by 90% and cost by 80%.  C-RED is the first rocket engine manufacturing technology developed with the aim of being a high-volume production method to meet growing high-volume demand.

Ursa’s vision is to become the standard for global economic intelligence. Our insights bring a level of transparency to the world that will fundamentally change how markets move and policy makers manage risk.  Ursa aggregates and analyzes satellite-based radar to build proprietary data layers resulting in unbiased, consistent, all-weather location-based services and measurements.  Ursa’s unique access to most of the world’s current and future radar satellites and our deep understanding of how to apply machine vision and machine learning to radar, gives the reliability that has hindered optical-based systems and allows Ursa to extract asymmetric value from a single image.

VORAGO Technologies is a privately held, high technology company based in Austin, TX with patented and proven solutions that enable electronics systems for extreme temperature and radiation environments. VORAGO’s patented HARDSIL® technology uses cost effective high volume manufacturing to harden any commercially designed semiconductor component for extreme environment operation. VORAGO Technologies opens up a new world of possibilities for your designs, no matter how hostile the environment.
