It all started with one satellite
We started our journey at the University of Stuttgart where we built and operated the university satellite. While this was teaching us how to operate satellites, we quickly saw limits. The space industry is held back by ancient operation tools and procedures. We will change that.
Satellite Usage Made Simple. This is what sat:io represents. But it’s not only the simplicity. We see the enormous benefit, new space companies bring. We see upcoming solutions for monitoring climate change, critical infrastructure, or agriculture. They all have brilliant minds behind their own sophisticated visions. They want to support humanity with their solutions. We are driven by helping them.
To operate satellites is difficult and complicated. Especially when it comes to being cost efficient and to survive in a competitive environment. We support space organizations with a modern operating system. We enable them to stay focused on their core business, allowing a sustainable growth.
