Astrocast was established in 2014 by the team that successfully developed and launched the SwissCube, a 1U research CubeSat which holds the record for being the longest continuously operating Cubesat ever launched.
Our Operations and Finance teams come from the launch services industry and include the former President of Sea Launch, a corporation that has launched over 39 payloads. Our Business Development team has over 25 years of experience in the M2M and IoT industry, building sales and partnership ecosystems for hardware companies like Digi and Multitech, and end customers like Coca-Cola, Federal Express and Stanley Tools.
We are honored to have a former astronaut and a former ESA director as an advisor and chairman of the board.
As of May 2019, we are 36 people representing 13 different countries and only one mission!
Our vision & mission
Vision: “We believe in a world where IoT is global and benefits all.”
Mission: “We track assets, monitor the environment and save lives by building and operating the most advanced and sustainable satellite IoT network.”
At Astrocast, we entertain an open, healthy and altruistic environment, making for happy, productive, and creative employees. And we believe in the importance of caring about society, which is why we regularly organize community events.
There are two sides to our guiding values. Internally we are ASTRO but externally we’re very much customer-focused or CAST.
ASTRO: Agile, Smart, Team-oriented, Respectful, Open-minded.
CAST: Customer-oriented, Affordable, Sustainable, Trustworthy.
