SpaceLink establishes HQ in Tysons
Satellite telecom company is building space relay network
Satellite telecommunications company SpaceLink, a subsidiary of Australian aerospace and defense contractor Electro Optic Systems, has established its headquarters in Tysons.
SpaceLink is building a space relay network of satellites in medium Earth orbit that will provide secure, continuous, high-bandwidth communications between its clients’ low Earth orbit spacecraft and the ground. Clients could include commercial space stations and satellite servicers. The company also has operations in Silicon Valley and Huntsville, Alabama.
“The new headquarters office is another indicator of how our business strategy is gaining momentum,” SpaceLink CEO David Bettinger said in a statement. “The Northern Virginia location provides a hub for activities that serve a broad range of spacecraft operators who need continuous connectivity in near Earth orbit.”
