Open Cosmos uses the power of satellites to simplify and democratise access to space and space data.
Satellites have become a critical way to deliver communications and receive data around the world. Their operational complexity is growing more difficult every year as more and more satellite data is relied upon for critical decisions on Earth. New satellite systems are expensive to deploy, leading to increased demand on existing infrastructure.
Open Cosmos delivers end-to-end telecommunications, Earth Observation, navigation and scientific missions. It designs, builds, launches, and operates advanced satellites through its OpenOrbit offering. THis enables organisations to access and share data via its mutualised OpenConstellation infrastructure, and offers AI-powered data analysis from a growing range of satellite sources and analytic partners via the DataCosmos platform. This not only dramatically lowers the costs, complexity, and timescales of missions, but it also simplifies access to data, enabling companies to address society’s most urgent challenges.
After studying aerospace engineering at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia in Barcelona and completing an MBA, Rafel worked at large corporations, such as Airbus Defence and Space, as well as small innovative space startups, such as zero2infinity.
