      E-Space completed a U.S. Department of Defense contract with a demonstration at the Naval Surface Warfare Center, the company announced Wednesday. 

      The announcement was light on details, E-Space said it demonstrated “innovative communications and connectivity capabilities” on its Low-Earth Orbit (LEO) space system to members of the Space Development Agency (SDA) at the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Crane, Indiana. 

      E-Space has three demonstration satellites in orbit that were launched last year, with plans to launch a few thousand satellites in the coming years. The company is targeting IoT solutions and services for industries like defense, logistics, and connected vehicles. 

      “Successful completion of this field test is a critical proof point for how space can be leveraged to further enhance communications and situational awareness in future military operations,” said CEO Greg Wyler. “E-Space has game-changing technology. We are extending satellite coverage and connectivity so that warfighters, in and out of theater, have access to a new kind of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) platform that can connect, sense and track all military assets across the globe.”
