Astranis is a space start-up that was founded in November 2015. Their goal is to attack the existing $122 billion/year market that contains bloated incumbents and 80% margins. This start-up company is building small, low-cost telecommunications satellites with a mission to help bring the 4 billion people online who are currently without internet access. To do this, they plan to reinvent 30 GHz radios in space and develop clusters of low-cost satellites to reduce hardware costs by 90% when compared with the $300 million+ cost of large satellites.
