BlackStar Orbital - Poised to Become Leading Next Gen Defense Contractor On the Ultimate High Ground

Updated: Mar 25, 2023

CAPE CANAVERAL, FLORIDA - BlackStar Orbital Technologies Corporation, the space technology company that specializes in revolutionizing the satellite industry, has set its sights on becoming a leading defense contractor in the United States. With its cutting-edge technology and focus on rapid innovation, BlackStar Orbital is well-positioned to capture a significant market share and lead the United States in the race for space dominance.

The company's latest innovation, the Orbital Sentry Satellite, is the centerpiece of its defense strategy. The Orbital Sentry Satellite, also known internally as BlackStar-D is a reconfigurable and upgradable spacecraft capable of performing a wide range of mission functions, including defense and surveillance. Equipped with advanced sensors and machine learning algorithms, the satellite can detect and track hypersonic weapons in real-time, giving the United States a critical tactical advantage in space.

One of the most unique features of the BlackStar-D is its "ready on" capability, meaning that it can deliver ordinance on target anywhere in the world on 15 minutes' notice. This capability is made possible by the satellite's reconfigurable and upgradable design, which allows it to be quickly outfitted with the necessary hardware and software for any given mission on it's common core reusable architecture. The satellite's edge computing technology also enables it to process and analyze data in real-time, allowing for rapid decision-making and response in the absence of human input.

BlackStar Orbital is also developing variants of the BlackStar-D family of SpaceDrones with Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) technologies such as high-tech optics and synthetic aperture radar. These technologies provide unparalleled situational awareness to warfighters on the ground and in the air, enabling them to make better decisions in real-time. ISR technology has become increasingly critical to the success of military operations, and BlackStar Orbital is at the forefront of its development.

While BlackStar Orbital is focused on defense, the company is also making significant strides in the commercial market. The company is developing a range of satellites, including imaging, remote sensing, communications, and surveillance satellites, for commercial use. These satellites are reconfigurable and upgradable, making them ideal for a wide range of applications.

The edge computing technology on board the BlackStar Satellite offers computational power that is ideal for high-speed processing of data, making it a valuable asset for a wide range of applications. The company's approach to innovation and technology development is focused on rapid innovation and research and development, working with partners and customers to develop customized solutions that meet specific mission requirements.

The smallsat market has seen significant growth in recent years, and BlackStar Orbital is poised to take advantage of this growth. With an annual revenue target of between $400 million and $650 million by the end of the decade, BlackStar Orbital is set to capture a significant market share.

According to BlackStar Orbital CEO, Christopher Jannette, "The Orbital Sentry Satellite is just the beginning for BlackStar Orbital. We're developing a range of satellites, both for defense and commercial use, that will revolutionize the industry. Our focus on innovation, technology development, and customized solutions sets us apart from our competitors."

On the commercial front - The company's technology and services have the potential to provide low-cost digital services to underserved communities in the developing world, helping to bridge the digital divide. In addition, the company's focus on reusability and sustainability is aligned with the growing trend towards environmental responsibility in the space industry. Reusability of spacecraft is critical for reducing the environmental impact of space activities and conserving precious metals used in satellite production.
