Rivada Space Networks, which is looking to launch a 600 craft ultra-secure mega-constellation called OuterNet, has signed a number of partners for its service which is scheduled to have global coverage by 2026. The partners, announced in Singapore at AsiaTechX and a Satellite Industry Forum at the show, include:

· KT Sat – Korea
· Connecto Network Systems (CNSI) – Philippines
· NiAT – Brunei
· AT Communications – Japan
· Teleport Access Services – Taiwan

KT SAT, for example, is Korea’s national satellite communications services provider, and Rivada Space Networks have signed an MoU to provide next-generation connectivity for Enterprise and Government customers, enabling expansion in Asia Pacific and beyond.

Declan Ganley, CEO of Rivada Space Networks, said: “We are seeing a huge uptake in our business in Asia, underlining the growing appetite for our unique space-based network. The outernet’s ability to meet the requirements of Asia’s connectivity providers in terms of security, latency, capacity, and coverage is a game-changer for the region. Our completely new type of LEO constellation will provide the whole of Asia with a transformative next-generation infrastructure for secure, resilient communications and network expansion.”

Rivada’s VP/Sales for Asia Pacific, Donald Chew, added: “I am delighted to be participating once again at AsiaTechX in Singapore. The outernet is what data communications has been waiting for – a next-generation data infrastructure providing unrivalled secure and resilient connectivity and fuelling new opportunities for network expansion.”

Rivada’s fleet of laser-enabled satellites is being built by Terran Orbital.
