Recently, Exodus Orbitals and Modularity Space joined forces and envision a future where every farm owner or every small business operator can have their own satellite mission on a sub $1,000 budget. A future where every amateur astronomer can afford dedicated time on real space telescope and a world that is connected even in the most remote and uninhabitable locations on Earth.
This partnership signifies the transitions from a single satellite hosting one mission for single customer, to hundreds of satellites hosting thousands of software-defined missions tailored to each specific customer. Within a few years, a farmer, a banker and an amateur hobbyist can all have their own mission from the comfort of their own home.
Exodus Orbitals and Modularity Space are officially announcing the start of ambitious new initiative: a “satellite-as-a-service” platform to run software applications in space, by combining the respective powers of both companies: software development and reusable space engineering. Millions of people worldwide will now have their chance at participating in the upcoming space rush, on par with national space agencies and large aerospace companies – as soon as 2022. SatNews
