Audacy Launches Partner Alliance, Names First Two Members
Space communications and real-time date service provider Audacy launched a partner program of select companies that will form its reseller network. The Audacy Alliance also named its first two confirmed members — SpaceQuest, a Fairfax, Virginia-based developer of advanced satellite technology for government, university and commercial use, and ÅAC Clyde, a joint venture of AAC Microtec and Clyde Space.
“Audacy provides continuous connectivity to our Low Earth Orbit (LEO satellites), which allows us to identify and address issues that may occur while our satellites are not within range of our ground stations. Most importantly, connecting through Audacy avoids much of the costs and delays in obtaining the regulatory approvals needed to get our satellites into orbit,” said SpaceQuest Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Dino Lorenzini.
The Audacy space-based data relay system is set to go live in 2019, with initial ground-based services launching later this year. Audacy Alliance members will participate in different programs characterized by their involvement in the company’s referrals, capacity reselling, and manufacturing.
“Audacy’s innovative product allows for 100% connectivity to any LEO satellite and represents a huge improvement in the communications options available for our spacecraft. This alliance is testimony to our commitment to innovation throughout our product lifecycle,” ÅAC Clyde Founder and Chief Strategy Officer (CSO) Craig Clark.
