I thought you might enjoy seeing the following video of my recent presentation at the International Symposium for Personal and Commercial Spaceflight (ISPCS). The ISPCS is one of the most prestigious commercial space conferences, and I was honored to have been chosen to speak.
Spotlight Address: The Future All Payloaders Hope For-Commercial WiFi Service in Space Brian Barnett, Founder, President, and Chief Executive Officer, Solstar Space
Using a short video and photographs, M. Brian Barnett will describe and show how the first commercial WiFi service on a commercial spacecraft succeeded. On April 29th, 2018, Solstar used its WiFi service inside Blue Origin’s New Shepard crew capsule to post the first commercial tweet from space using the Schmitt Space Communicator SC-1x payload. What this means is that future payloaders can have real-time, convenient access to their WiFi-enabled payloads, machines, and colleagues in space using a smartphone or any other internet connected device. This is truly a tipping point advancement for commercial space and is an enabling technology for researchers and companies. Solstar provides the WiFi, our customers decide how they want to use it to advance their research and business objectives.
