Comment from Takayoshi Fukuyo, CEO of ArkEdge Space

Thank you very much for selecting us as an EY Innovative Startup. With the advent of small satellites, it has become possible to launch and use satellites at low cost and in a short development period, dramatically lowering the hurdles to satellite-based businesses. In particular, the constellation of many satellites in space has enabled high-frequency observation and data collection, which is changing the way we use space in various fields such as satellite communications, earth observation, and PNT, as well as changing society at large.
We believe that the use of small satellites can contribute to solving global issues such as climate change and biodiversity, and to creating a safer and more prosperous society in vast areas such as oceans and forests, and in regions where basic infrastructure such as electricity and communications have not yet been developed.

Through the provision of small satellite solutions, ArkEdge Space will continue to contribute to the realization of a future in which satellite-based business is possible for everyone.
