SANTA FE, NM, USA – December 20, 2019 In light of today’s Boeing Starliner launch and subsequent mission malfunctions, I wanted to address the issue of space communication and the need to provide alternative options to the current NASA satellite systems. NASA’s Tracking and Data Relay Satellite (TDRS) was initially installed in the 1970s, and is only open to NASA-partnered spacecraft. The system has near-constant connections but as we have seen with today’s anomaly, there is a need for a back-up system on all spacecraft to avoid blackout areas.Solstar Space Company is pioneering the technology to create a ‘space wide web’. We enable 24/7 secure, economical, convenient, two-way, internet-based communications with every “thing” in space.
With the preliminary information that we have seen from today’s mission malfunction, it is highly likely that Solstar Space Company Space Communicators could have provided a back-up signal to cover the satellite blackout areas and helped maintain the connection to Boeing’s autonomous system.As an internet service company, Solstar Space is providing a solution with the first-ever commercial Wi-Fi for the new space industry. Solstar connects space to earth through patent-pending satellite technology. Solstar Space Company harnesses the power of the very best existing infrastructure to facilitate constant communication with space assets.We know space is hard, but we believe we have a solution to space communication problems.
