Our mission is to develop and implement the services and the enabling technologies for distributed and federated satellite missions. We believe that these novel paradigms can bring several advantages for the space industry not only by optimization of data distribution, but also by increasing overall missions performance and reducing operational costs. As a first step, we want to enhance the communication capabilities of small and micro satellites by offering affordable optical communications terminals with datarates in the order of hundreds of megabits.
