FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - CTO Mike Carey to lead Silicon Valley TechTalk Series


Gilbert, Arizona, United States – January 31, 2015


Assured Space Access Technologies, Inc. CTO, Mike Carey, will introduce ATLAS - An Affordable Global Satellite Ground Network on Feb 4, 2014 in Mountain View, CA. The burgeoning microsat/nanosat market, which includes CubeSats, is an under-served audience when it comes to ground station support. Compared to their larger cousins, these satellites are often characterized by rapid development cycles, wide use of off-the-shelf parts, and corresponding lower budgets. The ATLAS communication network is designed as a low-cost solution for this market.



ATLAS will be a commercial global ground network with nodes in the Arctic and mid-latitudes, operating in S, X, and Ka as well as Amateur UHF bands. By using the cloud and software-defined radios, it will virtualize the entire satellite operations experience while reducing infrastructure and overhead costs. ATLAS is being designed and built by a small team of space operations experts with a breadth of experience.



This discussion is part of the TechTalks series, jointly organized by Silicon Valley Space Center and the AIAA San Francisco Section. Reserve a spot on EventBrite (event 15216501967)

Feb 4, (Wednesday) 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm, Hacker Dojo, 599 Fairchild Dr., Mountain View, CA 94043
