Cambridge, MA, USA, April 29, 2022.
The two companies entered a strategic partnership to support the upcoming lunar race with broadband-enabled data intelligence using Lunar Station’s MoonHacker™ Intelligence Platform “MoonHacker™” and Plus Ultra’s communication and navigation constellation “Harmony”.
Plus Ultra’s 24/7 high-speed connectivity (up to 100 Mbps per user) will allow continuous access for lunar customers to up-to-date, mission-critical information about their lunar missions and environment generated by Lunar Station’s MoonHacker data analytics software. Lunar users will benefit from realtime data that support their mission’s success from planning to operations.
Beyond joint commercial offering, the US-European cooperation will create new opportunities for lunar businesses and support the creation of the lunar economy with joint marketing efforts and scientific collaboration.
“We are very excited about this opportunity to partner with Plus Ultra and building the premier network for lunar intelligence. This network fundamentally becomes the Central Nervous System of the CISLunar Domain for our mutual clients.” said Blair DeWitt, CEO of Lunar Station.
Plus Ultra’s CEO, Carlos M. Entrena Utrilla stated: “Our partnership amplifies the value of our lunar communications pipeline by providing additional value to our customers beyond a simple connection. As we see on Earth, data alone is useless: top-notch data analytics and access to those insights are the real value creators. That’s precisely what we achieve with our partnership with Lunar Station”.
