Otta's take

Xav Kearney

CTO of Otta

The use of satellites was once confined to governmental services and communication giants, but recent innovations in satellite deployment have provided new opportunities for businesses to operate satellite fleets. Whilst this allows them to develop IoT products and provide rapid connectivity services to their customers, accessing the technology and resources needed to launch satellite buses is expensive, complex, and dependent on aerospace expertise.

Loft Orbital deploys space infrastructure as a service, providing businesses with rapid, reliable, and simplified access to space technologies. The company focuses on shielding its customers from the complexities of aerospace missions, allowing them to provide satellite-driven products to their customers without requiring expensive consultants, infrastructure, and inventories.

Whilst the company will face significant competition with satellite deployment giants such as SpaceX, Loft Orbital stands out with its turnkey approach, ultimately increasing accessibility and reducing the complexities associated with satellite-driven services. This has positioned it as an approachable partner for clients including Arabsat, which represents satellite monitoring for the entirety of the Arab League, The company also demonstrates great potential for industry disruption due to its guidance from CEO Pierre-Damien Vaujour, who has experience as an Aerospace System Engineer for NASA.
