Astranis is a developer of a new satellite technology that aims to transmit data down to specific terrestrial locations with each satellite it launches. The company's mission is to help get online the 4 billion people who are without internet access.
There is a deep digital divide in the U.S. Nearly 42 million or 13% of Americans lack high-speed internet access. We need a better solution to build and launch satellites to improve the general public's access to sufficient internet connectivity. With a great depth of knowledge and experience in the satellites industry, the founding team in Astranis is about to usher in a new era with lower cost and faster built satellites.
