Extending CubeSat LEO platforms to GEO missions – with Space Inventor

Podcast

Episode 17 of the Space Industry podcast is a discussion with Space Inventor about the commercial and technical challenges of adapting Low Earth Orbit (LEO) technologies for Geosynchronous Orbit (GEO) applications.

In this episode we speak with Jacob Nissen at Chief Sales Officer, at Space Inventor. Space Inventor is a Danish satellite engineering company, founded in 2002, that specializes in nano- and microsatellites. The company is also a participant in the satsearch membership program. In the podcast we discuss:

  • How the CubeSat industry has evolved to produce platforms with higher performance and reliability.
  • The current trends in the industry, with regard to satellite sizes, payload capabilities, and more.
  • The commercial and technology challenges of adapting LEO technology GEO applications.
  • How the GEO sector could evolve in the coming years.
