Leaf Space is expanding to the United States and will support their rapidly growing list of U.S.-based customers while also adding new ground stations to existing infrastructure. Headquartered in Lomazzo, Italy, Leaf Space enables full exploitation of space data to satellite and launch vehicle operators.
Since Leaf Space’s inception in 2014, the company has focused on developing ground station services and technology with the goal of creating GSaaS solutions available on the modern space market. The company has achieved success working in partnership with over 15 customers that include Astrocast, D-Orbit and the European Space Agency (ESA) to increase performance and availability of crucial data while simultaneously lowering costs and decreasing latency.
Now, Leaf Space is expanding operations to the U.S. to service existing customers including Momentus, Kepler Communications and Swarm, as well as introduce the company’s GSaaS solutions to a growing market of satellite and launch vehicle operators. Leaf Space is also adding more ground stations to existing infrastructure to amplify the company’s ability to provide customers with the highest-quality ground station services, at lower costs.
“There is a clear appetite among U.S. satellite and launch vehicle operators to simplify, outsource, and maximize the value from ground services and we believe that need is only going to grow,” said Jai Dialani, Head of U.S. Business Development and M.D. of Leaf Space LLC in U.S. “Leaf Space is uniquely positioned to provide expert level GSaaS solutions built upon years of experience with high-profile customers overseas, yet we are nimble enough to offer customers flexible solutions that support their unique business needs and mission requirements at scale.”
Leaf Space pioneered the concept of GSaaS for satellite and launch vehicle operators around the world. The company already provides GSaaS solutions for Momentus, ensuring reliable and efficient communication with spacecraft using Momentus’ services to place smallsats in precise orbits.
