C8 Secure, OrbitsEdge, SpacePrep, and Vaya Space join to transform the speed and security of data transfer.
Vaya Space, a green rocket company; C8 Secure a Continent 8, a cybersecurity arm of major data center company; Orbits Edge, a space computing company, and Space Prep announced the formation of the In-Space Computing Alliance (ISCA) to provide affordable and secure data processing capabilities at the edge of space.
The ISCA will transform the ability of technology and data users to securely transmit information through space in a fraction of the time versus current methodologies.
In order to create the alliance, Vaya Space teamed up with C8 Secure, Orbits Edge, and Space Prep. Each of these companies brought a distinctive and complementary capability to the table, and the result is faster, less expensive, and more secure data transfer for end users across a variety of industries.
According to Rick Ward, CTO of Orbits Edge, there are serious bandwidth and latency problems with the current infrastructure for data transfer and communication. Space colonization and commercialization are unlikely without the ISCA and its inventive ideas. Utilizing their complementary skills, they can cut the time needed for data transfer from days to minutes.
The ISCA lessens the requirement for sending substantial amounts of data from space to Earth or to other in-space systems for processing. The capability can be used to improve the operational mobility of remotely controlled spacecraft and surface vehicles.
Through an orbital data infrastructure, the alliance will be able to support a variety of missions and enable vital computing utility and information delivery capacity..
C8 Secure Managing Partner Patrick Gardner said that the spaceborne computing platform must be monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week for cyber security threats and vulnerabilities, all while overcoming the limitations of the communication bandwidth.
In line with this, C8 Secure, A Continent 8 Company, is prepared to provide this security solution worldwide. Their technology reduces the transmission requirements and can make spaceborne computer networks feasible.
Furthermore, for Brent Willis, Vaya Space CEO, this alliance creates a new secure and low-cost capability for data users worldwide, and Vaya Space is proud to be part of the effort to transform the path to space.
This all-encompassing strategy, produced by the combined efforts of each alliance partner, leads to a cost-effective, dependable, and secure solution that will transform how we utilize data in our daily lives.
