Spaceflight has partnered with a variety of small satellite radio manufacturers to offer customers a wide selection of communication devices compatible with our extensive network of ground station sites. See our datasheet for more information.

How it Works

  • 1. Choose and purchase a radio that fits your budget and mission needs.
  • 2. Purchase a data plan to utilize the network. There are no setup fees required to use the network.
  • 3. Sign up for passes via the Spaceflight Networks web-based interface or API. During a contact pass, a secure data port will be provided to route data to and from the satellite via Spaceflight Networks.

Data Plans & Pricing




We currently offer two data plan models to give customers flexibility.

Model 1 – Pay per Minute

With this plan, customers pay per minute for the contact time that is used. Contacts are scheduled through our easy to use API and data is linked back to the customer’s data center or available for post-contact download.

Model 2 – Pay per Month

With this plan, customers purchase access on a monthly basis and are given 24/7 exclusive use of an antenna/transceiver pair. This model is ideal for customers with large numbers of on-orbit assets and require significant data downloads.
