Lead the frontier era of space with our CubeSat technology.
Establish the telecommunication/data infrastructure for economic activity on outer space.
1. Communication Infrastructure business for low orbit satellites
Portable Ground Station
Easy to set up, and with advanced facilities that make possible real-time access to the satellites via phone or web (Launched November, 2018).
On-demand Ground Station Services
Ground stations installed by Warpspace at various places can be used via web service or API (Services opens from September,2019).
Space Communication Infrastructure Services
Depending on the market success, the ultra-small and station-based satellite will be deployed sequentially from lower orbit till lunar transition orbit (2025 prospect).
2. Module development business for small satellites
Module for Small Satellite
Currently developing a module for significantly low-cost small satellite over significant satellite, the technology of Warpspace along with Tsukuba University and gathered know-how. (The power supply, communication, OBC, GPS various modules will be launched in the fall of 2019)
Developing World’s smallest class module
In collaboration with JAXA and Tsukuba University, we are currently developing world’s smallest attitude control module of class and the ion thruster (promoting machine).
3. Satellite related Technology transfer business
In developing countries, we provide support to government agencies and local companies to acquire their satellite development technology. In the first year, with acceptance from Research personnel of Tsukuba, we will be experiencing the real-life development and control of the satellite. The individual will move back to their country in the following year, and with our support, the launch of the satellite will be a reality in two years period.
