Astrocast launches four spacecraft; increases constellation to 18 satellites

Milestone of new satellites improves capacity and reliability of SatIoT network
for clients

Lausanne, Switzerland & Cape Canaveral, USA, January 4, 2023 - Astrocast, a
leading global nanosatellite IoT network operator, launched four Astrocast 3U
spacecraft into space on Tuesday, 3rd January. This launch is a significant
milestone for Astrocast's nanosatellite IoT network; and enables the company to
increase its commercial constellation 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. 

These new satellites improve the capacity and reliability of Astrocast's network
and will play a key part in providing to customers across the globe. This recent
launch took place at  Cape Canaveral Space Force Station, with D-Orbit's ION
Satellite Carrier on the Transporter 6 mission with the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. 

Fabien Jordan, CEO and Co-Founder of Astrocast, says, "This is another major
achievement for our team, and our clients will continue to benefit from the
growth and innovation taking place across our nanosatellite IoT network. We are
diligently growing our reliable network, improving the overall performance of
our global IoT services. We feel great about the progress to date and are on
track to meet our goals for 2023 and beyond. This successful launch is a true
credit to our team of engineers and IoT experts, and our partnership with

Astrocast recently launched its satellite IoT Service in February 2022. It
offers Systems Integrators and end users access to a cost-effective,
bidirectional Satellite IoT service; and enables organisations to deal with
global IoT connectivity challenges in remote locations of the world. For
example, use cases include tracking shipping containers across the globe in
order to monitor supply chains; or enabling farmers to command silos to release
food, open gates or manage irrigation systems, without any need for expensive
and often hard-to-source human interaction. Utility companies can remotely
control water management systems in line with flood prevention strategies.
