E-Space is a step closer to providing services in Saudi Arabia, one of the Middle East’s biggest markets. The company announced Nov. 9 that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s (KSA) Communications and Technology Commission (CST) has now listed E-Space in their new Satellite Registry to land communications traffic in the Kingdom. This is a critical step that will allow E-Space to deliver its space-based, smart Internet of Things (Smart-IoT) solutions in a key economy in the Middle East.

As part of the Saudi Vision 2030, the CST will grant landing/operating rights to satellite operators that meet certain requirements, from delivering satellite-based solutions to utilizing spectrum efficiently to offer unique services in the KSA.

“E-Space is proud to be one of the first companies listed on the Kingdom’s Satellite Registry and to be authorized to offer our services throughout the Kingdom. We believe space innovation should unlock efficiency and productivity gains, in alignment with the Kingdom’s interest to advance its space ecosystem, bring innovative and disruptive space capabilities to its market and meet goals outlined in Saudi Vision 2030,” Greg Wyler, E-Space founder, chairman and CEO, said in a statement.

E-Space, announced in February, plans to build a multi-application satellite constellation that could potentially reach more than 100,000 satellites, serving business and government customers. Wyler says the constellation will emphasize a sustainable space infrastructure design.
