About / Bio / Mission
Astrocast is building a network of leading-edge nanosatellites in Low Earth Orbit to provide cost-effective access to IoT (Internet of Things). Astrocast will offer a global coverage including remote areas on land, oceans and mountains. Astrocast terminals collect and transmit data from sensors or other customer assets. The data is collected by constellation of nanosatellites. The collected data is stored on the satellite and then forwarded to ground stations located around the globe. The ground stations forward the data to the cloud database, which is easily accessible to clients.
