Empowering Global Access to Space
Atlas modernizes satellite communications by offering a system that is both more advanced and cheaper than competitors’ offerings. Atlas’ advanced technologies allow for satellite owners and operators to:
- Communicate with multiple satellites simultaneously during a single session.
- Seamlessly transfer and process data that reduces latency from up to twelve minutes to eight seconds.
In addition, the company’s satellite systems are approximately 1/10 the cost of competing options. The result is an easy-to-use satellite communication system that eliminates headaches for owners and operators.
Atlas grew 3446% from 2019 to 2020, earning its place as #102 in Inc. Magazine’s 2020 list of fastest growing companies in America. This ranking represents a significant accomplishment for Atlas, given that in 2019 it ranked #2,413 on the same list from Inc. Magazine.
