For many years, space services were offered by a small number of operators with substantial upfront investment. Emerging competitors in the launch vehicle industry combined with the miniaturization of satellite electronics have enabled private companies to deploy constellations for a fraction of the cost. Despite the growth, operating a constellation of satellites in space is prohibitively difficult for most small companies due to lack of infrastructure. Stara is changing this.
Stara's constellation of nano-satellites provides secure data relay, storage, and computation for low earth orbit.
