Feel free to access the following resources when creating public content about Audacy.
Audacy, a Silicon Valley startup developing a satellite data-relay constellation, is forming a network of companies to build compatible components, resell communications capacity and refer customers.
The Audacy Alliance unveiled Aug. 28 has five partners, including ÅAC Clyde, the company being formed by Sweden’s ÅAC Microtec and Scotland’s Clyde Space, and Fairfax, Virginia-based SpaceQuest, a satellite technology developer.
Alumni of SpaceX, NASA and Stanford University have formed a company that they say is on the cusp of building an internet-style service in space.
Headquartered in California, the firm — Audacy — is on a mission to provide the first commercial space-based data relay system and has claimed the network should be fully operational by 2020. The U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) authorized a crucial license to the firm earlier this month.
Verticals to be greatly impacted by Audacy include launch vehicle operations, Internet of Things (IOT) constellation management, and human spaceflight. While any application of spacecraft in Low Earth Orbit (LEO) would benefit from 100 percent connectivity, Audacy extends this to as far as lunar distances.
Audacy’s June 6 operating license from the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has already had the effect of triggering a $4 million financing, in the form of equity-secured debt, from Horizon Technology Finance.
The U.S. Federal Communications Commission granted a spectrum license June 7 to Audacy, the Silicon Valley startup planning to establish a space-based commercial communications relay network.
Based in San Francisco, the company recently opened its second office in Singapore, where one of its ground stations will be located. SpaceTech Asia speaks to Audacy’s Co-founder and CEO Ralph Ewig and its Singapore team to find out more about Audacy and its plans for 2018.
