A Match Made in Space: Comtech and E-Space to Partner on Resilient Global Connectivity


Comtech and E-Space believe in being “fluent in the future” and are determined to create “a new suite of global capabilities to improve lives and business efficiencies, and to build a smarter planet.”


Hyper-scaled deployments of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions and the-sky’s-the-limit services, respectively. Both are focused on terrestrial and non-terrestrial technologies and how a future of hybridized connectivity – be it by Constellations-as-a-Service and other resilient IoT innovations – so it makes a whole lot of sense why the two would announce an agreement to team up.

(I can almost hear Jean-Luc Picard, in “Star Trek,” saying “Make it so.” in the far-off cosmos.)

This is exactly what’s happened. (The team-up, not Picard’s command, albeit that’d also be very cool.) Comtech and E-Space have, indeed, announced their partnership to, per the announcement itself, “develop and deploy space-based communications solutions and IoT services to support predominantly government and targeted commercial customers.”

This collaboration will leverage Comtech’s portfolio of convergence (i.e. satellites and cellular, IP networking, location services, etc.) with E-Spaces future-forward advanced space system, including its global low Earth orbit (LEO) constellation to provide their customers with resilience at scale.

Speaking more about how IoT communications gaps can be bridged were Comtech CEO Ken Peterman and E-SPACE CEO Greg Wyler:

"Continuous connectivity is a fundamental need in today’s information-driven society that will generate ongoing demand to blend terrestrial, wireless and satellite networks. By teaming with E-space,” Peterman said, “we will provide end users with reliable, global connectivity to enable near real-time predictive insights that will drive efficiency, reduce operator burden and empower individuals by providing access to new technologies.”

“Combining the expertise and resources from both Comtech and E-Space,” Wyler said, “will help revolutionize the way defense and commercial companies leverage space-powered data to connect, communicate and put intelligence into real action. From providing warfighters up-to-the-minute situational awareness to ensuring logistics providers have incredible insights into every asset in a shipment, we will be able to provide unique information sets that will enable smarter operations for a smarter world.”
