Spaceport America, NM, and Petaluma, CAÃ‚ – Global satellite communications solutions provider X2nSat announces today itsÃ‚ decision to partner with Spaceport America Ã¢â‚¬” the worldÃ¢â‚¬™s first purpose-built,Ã‚ commercial spaceport. X2nSat has signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA)Ã‚ for the long-term lease of land and access to infrastructure as the first VSATÃ‚ (Very Small Aperture Terminal) solution provider within Spaceport AmericaÃ¢â‚¬™s newÃ‚ satellite gateway ground station development.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I truly believe the world is a better place when the unconnected are connected,Ã¢â‚¬Ã‚ said Garrett C. Hill, CEO of X2nSat. Ã¢â‚¬Å“We chose to partner with SpaceportÃ‚ America to build the worldÃ¢â‚¬™s most modern satellite gateway to support currentÃ‚ and future satellite fleets because weÃ¢â‚¬™re passionate about building theÃ‚ infrastructure for the next generation of satellite communications. This locationÃ‚ has everything we need to do that Ã¢â‚¬” stable and dry weather, a southern latitude,Ã‚ 24/7 security, plentiful real estate, minimal electromagnetic interference, andÃ‚ extremely low horizons in all directions. This represents the future ofÃ‚ communications.Ã¢â‚¬
The MOA is a precursor to a long-term lease agreement scheduled to beÃ‚ finalized this summer. Groundbreaking for the facility is planned for later thisÃ‚ year, with it becoming operational in 2016 and adding as many as 20 jobs to NewÃ‚ Mexico in the long term.
By connecting its satellites to Spaceport AmericaÃ¢â‚¬™s robust terrestrial fiberÃ‚ network, X2nSatÃ¢â‚¬™s planned ground station will enable a variety of space-basedÃ‚ technology to improve daily life around the world Ã¢â‚¬” for health-careÃ‚ communications, smart-grid optimization, and energy and environmentalÃ‚ monitoring, among others. X2nSat currently provides highly reliable wirelessÃ‚ network and communications solutions to a wide variety of industries with itsÃ‚ high-capacity satellite gateway and 24x7x365 Network Operations Center locatedÃ‚ in California, with redundant sites and data centers spread throughout the UnitedÃ‚ States.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“X2nSatÃ¢â‚¬™s vision, know-how and track record of achievement in the VSAT andÃ‚ satellite communications industries make them an ideal partner for SpaceportÃ‚ America,Ã¢â‚¬ said Christine Anderson, CEO of Spaceport America. Ã¢â‚¬Å“WeÃ¢â‚¬™re thrilledÃ‚ X2nSat is joining our growing portfolio of customers, and look forward to fulfillingÃ‚ our mission to bring the future to the present through this new partnership.Ã¢â‚¬
