"We are honored to receive the FinSpace 2020 award," said Dr. Jeffrey Freedman, PhD, Kythera's CEO. "As the satellite communications industry migrates to software-defined communications payloads and networks, the need for sophisticated software that 'defines' what the satellite and network can and should do on a real-time basis becomes paramount. We're excited to be at the very forefront of this transformation, enabling satellite operators to dynamically and autonomously optimize service and service quality, and at the same time lower the cost per (useful) bit."

The annual FinSpace award is sponsored by Euroconsult Group and presented at the annual World Satellite Business Week conference (http://www.satellite-business.com/en), held virtually this year. This year’s judges included:

  • Jean-Jacque Dordain, Member of Advisory Board, SpaceResources.lu
