64 nanosatellites around the Earth.
A universe of IoT applications.

Satellite communications to the 90% of the world not covered by cellular systems used to be expensive. Not anymore with Astrocast.

With our network, we can help you cost-effectively manage your truly remote connections and maybe even help you change the world. Let’s change the world!

Endless opportunities
What is your idea ?

We’ve heard from hundreds of different industries looking to connect their devices to a global cost effective network like ours. We’d love to hear about your needs!

Maritime
applications

We are working with a wide variety of maritime applications from fishing buoys, fisheries, container tracking, bilge and exhaust discharge monitoring that help make the oceans safer and cleaner.

Environmental
applications

From water kiosks in remote villages in Africa to Tsunami warning buoys and sensors monitoring water quality in rivers and streams. Astrocast wants to help improve lives the world over.

Mining, Oil & Gas
applications

We are helping mining operations better maintain their equipment in some of the most remote places on Earth and helping oil and gas companies with monitoring wellheads, pipelines and discharge sensors.

How
it
works

Connect your terminal. Get your data.
We handle the rest.

We've made it easy for you to connect your remote devices by giving you a variety of terminals, flexible data plans, and APIs that let you have access to your data when you need it all with 256-bit encryption, the highest of any nanosatellite. We are bringing the world of space applications down to Earth with pricing that brings space within reach for the first time.
1

A miniaturized terminal...

We start with a power efficient ASIC that you can integrate directly into your high volume applications, or use our Astronode terminal for easy serial communication with your device.
2

...connected to our nanosatellites.

We will have 8 planes of 8 satellites orbiting the Earth giving us a low latency, two way network for IoT applications. Thanks to our dedicated L-Band frequencies, your network can scale to the millions without fear of noise generated by other devices.
3

Ground stations collect the information...

A geographically distributed network of ground stations collects the data gathered by the satellites and then uploads it to the cloud, only one step away from your information system.
4

...and after the cloud
synchronization ...

We've integrated our network with Azure to give you a wide variety of tools to host, manage and analyze your data.
5

...you can enjoy your data.

Our platform provides REST APIs that allow you to securely integrate the data into your information system, enabling you to easily monitor and control your world.

your
connections

We are Astrocast, nice to meet you.
