The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s Communications, Space and Technology Commission (CST) has now listed E-Space in their new Satellite Registry to land communications traffic in the Kingdom.
This is a critical step that will allow E-Space to deliver its space-based smart internet of things (Smart-IoT) solutions in a key economy in the Middle East.
The Kingdom recently revamped its regulatory framework for non-terrestrial networks (NTN), which includes the promotion and entry of global satellite operators. In line with its new national spectrum strategy and Saudi Vision 2030, the CST will grant landing/operating rights to satellite operators that meet certain requirements, from delivering innovative satellite-based solutions to utilising spectrum efficiently to offer services in the Kingdom.
Greg Wyler, chairman and CEO of E-Space, said: “E-Space is proud to be one of the first companies listed on the Kingdom’s Satellite Registry and to be authorised to offer our services throughout the Kingdom. We believe space innovation should unlock efficiency and productivity gains, in alignment with the Kingdom’s interest to advance its space ecosystem, bring innovative and disruptive space capabilities to its market and meet goals outlined in Saudi Vision 2030.”
E-Space is developing a global satellite service that will deliver revolutionary services in the new Smart-IoT sector based on bringing the latest innovations in Non-Geostationary Orbit (NGSO) satellites and sustainable spacecraft design. E-Space is committed to working with key stakeholders throughout the Kingdom to enable new opportunities for the Kingdom’s citizens, enhance business efficiencies across its priority industries and ensure the safety and security of its critical infrastructure.
