Astrocast expands nanosatellite family for IoT satellite services


The launch brings the company's commercial group to 18 satellites, making Astrocast one of the top 3 LEO satellite operators in Europe (based on the number of commercial satellites currently in low Earth orbit).

The nanosatellites used the ION Satellite Carrier aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket for the Transporter-6 mission to launch Tuesday from the Space Force Station in Cape Canaveral, Florida.

SpaceX Transporter-6 carried 114 payloads, making it the second largest shuttle mission ever launched. At right is the moment Astrocast's four nanosatellites separated from Falcon 9.
