Exodus Orbitals and Modularity Space to Create a “Satellite-as-a-Service” Platform for Software Applications in Space

The Combination of Exodus Orbitals and Modularity Space’s Expertise Will Provide Millions of Users Worldwide a New Way For Application Development, Testing and Operations in Space

Daytona Beach, US & Toronto, Canada, June 30th 2021

Currently, the capabilities of the space industry are hidden behind a multitude of barriers: costs, restrictive rules to engage with satellite operators, gatekeeping behaviors of government agencies and individuals in charge. This limits “small league” commercial players from entering the market, where most of the future innovation will come from. For example, mobile developers today can develop a new iOS app with a spare iPhone and $100 AppStore fee. No such path exists in space industry to rapidly get a space service online, even in a nanosatellite sector. 

Exodus and Modularity envision a future where every farm owner or every small business operator can have their own satellite mission on a sub $1000 USD budget. A future where every amateur astronomer can afford dedicated time on real space telescope and a world that is connected even in the most remote and uninhabitable locations on Earth.  This partnership signifies the transitions from a single satellite hosting one mission for single customer, to hundreds of satellites hosting thousands of software-defined missions tailored to each specific customer. Within a few years, a farmer, a banker, and an amateur hobbyist can all have their own mission in the comfort of their own home. 

With great pleasure, Exodus Orbitals and Modularity Space are officially announcing the start of ambitious new initiative: a “satellite-as-a-service” platform to run software applications in space, by combining the respective powers of both companies: software development and reusable space engineering. Through this unique offering, millions of people worldwide will get their chance at participating in the upcoming space rush, on par with national space agencies and large aerospace companies – as soon as next year! What other initiative is more exciting in the space industry today than two companies partnering together to create the future of space?

About Exodus Orbitals Inc.

Exodus Orbitals specializes in the development of satellite virtualization solutions, allowing access to observation and processing capabilities in space through a seamless, hardware- and vendor-independent “satellite-as-a-service” business model, suitable for multiple satellites types in LEO and beyond. This space software technology has been space-qualified through a participation with the European Space Agency’s, OPS-SAT mission – a “software laboratory in space” satellite, a first of its kind. 

About Modularity Space

Modularity Space is leading the transition to reusable space systems by building the first constellation of reusable satellites, named “The Neighborhood”. Commercial space companies and governments can rent satellite space on the network to host their constellations and technologies instead of developing their own satellites. This innovative “Satellite Rental” service, combined with Modularity Space’s proprietary reusable satellite technology will provide the fastest, easiest, and most affordable space platform every designed.

LEOcloud and Exodus Orbitals Collaborate To Deliver Seamless Cloud Framework For Satellite-Hosted Applications

The Combination of Exodus Orbitals And LEOcloud Services Will Provide Developers A Satellite Host Environment for Application Development, Test and Operation

Ashburn, VA & Toronto, Canada, June 15th 2021 – LEOcloud and Exodus Orbitals announced today they have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to develop a go to market and services integration strategy that will enable end users to develop, integrate and test their satellite-hosted applications in a seamless terrestrial and satellite cloud framework.

LEOcloud’s Space Edge mission and strategy is to bring hybrid cloud edge computing services as close as possible to satellite-sourced data; and data collected from, and services delivered to remote regions of the world. End users can then operate their business or mission critical services or applications in a seamless hybrid cloud environment, and realize the lowest latency possible for conversion from raw to monetized or actionable data. LEOcloud’s point and click approach for the end user will enable the reservation of dynamic and scalable virtual Space Edge computing resources, cloud services, and satellite data sources.

Exodus Orbitals mission is to make space exploration accessible to everyone through their “satellite-as-a-service” virtualization platform, to be deployed on a variety of satellites in Low Earth Orbit. Using flight-proven technology validated through our work on European Space Agency OPS-SAT mission, Exodus Orbitals will open up a new development platform for the millions of users worldwide. Following the pattern of web and smartphone app markets, software applications in space will become a new area of exponential growth.

To deliver the benefits and capabilities of Space Edge, LEOcloud plans to  deploy Red Hat OpenShift, the industry’s leading enterprise Kubernetes platform, that’s purpose-built for the age of hybrid innovation and delivers a more consistent experience across all environments, including Low Earth Orbit (LEO). Red Hat OpenShift is optimized for developer productivity and innovation.  With Red Hat OpenShift as the part of the LEOcloud framework, users will be able to run LEOcloud services across the entirety of the hybrid cloud, including at the edge, unlocking more speed, agility and flexibility.

The integration of Exodus Orbitals and LEOcloud services will allow developers to develop, integrate and test their applications in the intended satellite target environment, just as a they would do on Earth.  The benefit to the developer is the shortest time to market with the highest confidence of predicted behavior and performance for satellite-hosted applications.

“The result of LEOcloud and Exodus Orbitals collaboration will be a framework where developers can quickly and confidently bring to market their satellite-hosted applications,” said Dennis R. Gatens, CEO and president of LEOcloud. “As smart phones created a high growth market opportunity for mobile applications, satellite-hosted cloud infrastructure and services will do the same.”

“By partnering with LEOcloud we can accelerate development of satellite-hosted application platform, bringing the power and flexibility of software-defined solutions to the next frontier of global economy” in the words of Dennis Silin, Executive Director and founder of Exodus Orbitals.
