    U.S. Space was established in 2009 by a small group of respected leaders from the military, national security and private sectors with the single purpose of creating solutions to America’s urgent need for satellite-delivered communications services. In less than six months, the new company had lined up founding investors, assembled an expert management team, and formed enterprise partnerships with leading satellite service providers. Today, U.S. Space has expanded its business lines, offering not only the innovative satellite service solutions that combine the best attributes of military and commercial satellites, but also in-orbit satellite life extension services, and L-band mobile communications services.
