Deep Space Communication Products & Services
In the new space exploration age, moon missions are facing many challenges and communication is one of them. Not all locations on moon are accessible from earth to communicate to. This creates a barrier in communication.
Celestial aims to deploy a small-satellite relay constellation in lunar polar orbit. This constellation will be able to communicate and relay data of lunar missions to ground station. Celestial also aims to provide its satellite communication system to earth orbiting missions to explore high radiation earth orbits. This payload will be light weight and radiation hardened ensuring longer life than already existing similar communication systems.
The biggest benefit for lunar missions is cost saving by having low a weight communication system and accessibility to non accessible lunar locations.

A lunar relay satellite network constellation will be deployed in a lunar polar orbit. The constellation will consist of three satellites plus one redundant satellite. A S-band communication system will communicate with various lunar missions whereas the X band communication system will establish a connection from Celestial´s satellites to any earth ground station.
