Leaf Space Successfully Enables 13 Satellites on SpaceX Transporter-3 Rideshare Mission

Fremont, CA: Leaf Space, a leading provider of ground segment as-a-service (GSaaS) solutions, has established successful communications with all 13 satellites from five different customers, including D-Orbit, Kepler Communications, NanoAvionics, Sen, and Fossa Systems, that the company supported on SpaceX's latest Transporter-3 rideshare mission. Customers were capable of interacting and communicating with their assets in just a couple of hours from deployment, following the launch on Falcon 9 from Cape Canaveral on Jan. 13.

This successful deployment demonstrates Leaf Space's broad range of capabilities in supporting customers with diverse mission requirements and specifications. This launch includes a testbed for bringing space-to-ground and space-to-space connectivity (Kepler), improving the maintenance and planning of water and electricity networks (NanoAvionics), space logistics technology and transportation solutions (D-Orbit), and more.

We were able to move through our LEOP and commissioning very quickly and Leaf Space was a key part of that," stated Jake Urbanek, Director of Service Operations at Kepler Communications. "We were not only able to communicate with our satellites within days of the launch, but we were also able to complete a whole batch of critical operations within those first days as well."

Leaf Space's customer base and capabilities continue to expand, as does its distributed global ground station network.
