Richard Kusiolek, Managing Editor of GMCstream Incorporated meets with Christopher Richins, co-founder and CEO of RBC Signals. RBC Signals is a multi-national company enabling an improved commercial-focused model for the delivery and processing of real-time data from satellites in Low Earth Orbit. Richins stated that RBC Signals is “the first and only provider in our sector using a shared economy model to leverage existing ground station infrastructure to deliver and process real-time data. Our competitive pricing is critical for commercial satellite operators to make their own business plans financially feasible as the global space sector continues to commercialize.” Richins closed a seed round of funding. This is notable because the company, which is led by space industry veterans and is doing something very entrepreneurial, is the only real-time satellite date delivery provider capitalizing on the sharing economy (much like Uber or AirBnB) to meet the needs of its commercial satellite operator customers.
