Kepler Communications is a space-based telecommunications company that provides internet services for space assets. The company’s mission is to enable real-time communications access to spacecraft in orbit.

What:

  • Kepler is developing a constellation of data-relaying satellites that will effectively act as on-orbit cell phone towers.
  • The company’s cubesat constellation is designed to be scalable, low-cost, and quick to deploy.
  • Kepler’s narrowband-enabled base stations will ensure compatibility of both cellular-connected and remote devices.

Why:

  • Kepler will provide on-demand communications for, and real-time access to, the next generation of spacecraft––a critical service in an increasingly connected world.
  • Kepler’s satellite constellation will enable widespread machine-to-machine (M2M) connectivity, essential to establishing an Internet of Things (IoT).
  • The company’s service has an enormous range of applications, from smart agriculture and transportation to remote telematics.
