“Microsatellites aren’t just for science anymore,” explains David Cooper, President and CEO of MSCI.
“With the development of our Multi Mission Microsatellite Bus, we have standardized the architecture for a microsatellite and developed the Commercial Microsatellite Bus (CMB). This standard design allows us to lower costs significantly, which means solving a commercial need for distributing or collecting data over a wide geographic area may be more cost effective now from space than with terrestrial assets.”
MSCI is the founding company of COMMStellation™ - a consortium of companies formed to build and deploy a constellation of low earth orbit (LEO) microsatellites to address global backhaul and connectivity for commercial markets.
Commercial companies that collect or distribute data across a wide geographic area from or to their customers all have a common problem – what infrastructure to use. Traditionally, companies used hard ground assets – rail lines, phone lines, undersea cables, fibre optic cables – which are expensive but necessary. Since the sixties, satellites have played their role in reaching customers where ground infrastructure was not available, or impracticable, but these assets are expensive to build, maintain and use.
MSCI has changed this market dynamic. With the development of MSCI’s standard Multi Mission Microsatellite Bus (MMMB), we offer the ability to field a microsatellite, or constellation of microsatellites, to meet global real-time data collection or distribution at a surprisingly cost-effective price. Leveraging our flight heritage in the civil and military sectors, MSCI can now also design and build cost effective microsatellites for commercial applications, providing a new market with access to traditionally cost-prohibitive services, enabling new customers to pass on value-adds and savings to their customers.
A constellation of microsatellites would provide an affordable way for telecommunications companies to get greater coverage and provide better quality services to their clients.
