Getting Arcturus Ready for Launch - Vlog 1

In our first ever vlog we follow our Mechanical Integration team as they prepare Arcturus, our Alaska satellite for Pacific Dataport, for its upcoming launch on a SpaceX Falcon Heavy.

We're connecting the 4 billion unconnected to the internet, 1 satellite at a time.

The First State with a Dedicated Satellite | Vlog 2

Jan 18, 2023
We’re about to launch the first communications satellite ever dedicated to a U.S. state. In our newest vlog we went up to Alaska to talk to Astranis customer Pacific Dataport and the people in Alaska who are eagerly awaiting our satellite.

We're connecting the 4 billion unconnected to the internet, 1 satellite at a time.

Thanks Bloomberg @technology for having me on the show to talk about what we're building at @Astranis. Couldn't be more excited about our first satellite being delivered to Cape Canaveral.

Internet from a small satellite in geostationary orbit? Sure, why not
"We now have a new way of connecting very remote places."

by Eric Berger - May 24, 2023 1:06pm GMT

A startup space company says it has successfully deployed and tested a kitchen-stove-sized satellite in geostationary orbit and begun delivering Internet service to Alaska.

Astranis' first internet satellite Arcturus is in orbit, and is working "perfectly" after tests: https://www.cnbc.com/2023/05/24/astranis-first-internet-satellite-over-alaska-working-perfectly.html

Our Pier 70 HQ used to be a production line during WWI and WWII where steel would come in one end and complete battleships and submarines would go out the other.

Now, we’re using that same factory to build things for space.

Final satellite will be "UtilitySat", which will replace Arcturus, which suffered a solar array malfunction.

Astranis will launch the previously unannounced “UtilitySat” as part of its batch of four satellites that are set to fly later this year. Gedmark described it as “the Swiss Army Knife of satellites.”
