Mission as a Service
To ease the path to orbit, Astro Digital has developed MaaS - a bundled suite of services holistically addressing the technical, finanical and regulatory challenges of your mission.
Challenges of Launching a Satellite Mission
Time
Usually it takes at least 2 years to build the first satellite mission from scratch. Having a proper mission legacy it's possible to run a brand new mission in less than 6 months.
Launch opportunities
Though the industry of commercial launches is growing there's still a limited number of launch opportunities for various payloads at a reasonable price.
Expertise
A space mission is a multi-disciplinary task and it requires professionals with different skillset including mechanical engineering, orbit planning, satellite operations and data processing.
Infrastructure
Building a spacecraft requires complicated equipment including cleanrooms, satellite antennas, vibration and temperature test machines.
Beyond the hardware, there exists significant amount of ancillary work to get a satellite based mission off the ground, including everything from early mission design and launch procurement to Export and Spectrum Licensing.
