Satellite Mission Management as a Service
Hey everyone! Today we’re launching Quindar, a web app used by satellite owners to track, contact, monitor and operate satellites from deployment into space until end-of-life. For example, NASA could use Quindar to test and operate their satellites with minimal human intervention.
We’re six former OneWeb engineers who helped build the software that operates the second largest satellite constellation today – at 428 and counting. After OneWeb, we built another operations center for an earth imaging constellation but today we are building a unified platform for every satellite owner.
Current satellite mission software solutions are a mix of COTS products that was built over 20 years ago.
There are 4,500 active satellites in orbit today however 1,700 will be launched each year through 2030. The space industry is shifting from companies launching a handful of satellites over a decade, to launching hundreds of satellites in just a few years.
The traditional model of many engineers operating a few satellites doesn’t scale.
Quindar provides satellite mission management as a service. Our platform:
Our mission is to democratize space. To be the IT for what are essentially flying servers. Customers need to focus on their mission - image collection and resolution, docking to another spacecraft, landing on an asteroid, or broadband from space and let us manage the infrastructure and software utility that supports it.
If you, your friends, or colleagues are trying to launch a satellite please reach out to us at email@example.com. We’d love to save them the pain of building and managing a software team and all the gotcha’s that come with satellite ops! Friends don’t let friends build their own mission ops 🙅.
