Astrocast 0303

NSSDCA/COSPAR ID: 2022-158H

Description

Astrocast is a network of Nanosatellites providing global L-band machine-to-machine (M2M) services. The satellites are orbiting in a low earth polar orbit. This allows the creation of a global network covering the entire globe, including the poles. Thanks to a dedicated frequency band, the constellation can scale without fear of noise generated by other devices. Astrocast estimates it can build, launch and operate a 64-cubesat constellation for less than $50 million to provide low-data-rate communications. The constellation will consist of eight operational satellites per orbital plane, and eight different orbital planes in sun-synchronous polar orbits.
