Arkisys has a new initiative with an aim to accelerate early stage lab-to-orbit opportunities. The program will be initially focused on SBIR and STTR Phase I entrants.
Beginning in November 2021, Arkisys will offer a unique opportunity for any company that submits an SBIR/STTR Phase I to utilize the Port under our new "Embark" program - one of the world's most affordable access to space platforms. The Embark US Program is our first initiative to accelerate companies and academic investments from the US government through the successful SBIR/STTR process, to enable prototype and new technology demonstrations on orbit at the end of Phase II! By including a Port flight evaluation through Arkisys at a cost of $5,000 USD in a Phase I proposal, if a company gets a Phase II and can deliver any size of prototype within the Phase II time frame, Arkisys will fly the payload to the Port at a fraction of the cost of our normal hosting services, for $150,000 USD. This is our way to acknowledge the investment out of the nation's tax-payer investments into new Space technology, and accelerate the learning and innovation celebrated in the US!
Our Embark US program is the first opportunity we intend to rollout around the world. The intent is to not just accelerate innovation within the US, but globally, through collaboration with international partners.
US-centric initiative to accelerate any company and academic initial investment by the US government through the SBIR/STTR process to get a prototype to orbit and to The Port.
APAC program that promotes the adoption of space solutions and supports the development of companies and university research at The Port, with support from our New Zealand office.
EMEA program that promotes the adoption of space solutions and supports the development of companies and university research at The Port
Worldwide Startup Accelerator program that works closely with aerospace and defense accelerators focused on the development of early stage companies conducting business on The Port.
The Embark program offerings provide 30 days of standard services afforded a hosted payload on the Port in orbit, with nominal data download of information, and service support onboard as required. After 30 days should the company wish to continue to use and operate its payload, normal Port service charges will apply for hosting a payload at a per month rate.
