About FreeFall Aerospace
FreeFall Aerospace is developing innovative antenna solutions for small spacecraft, fixed and mobile ground stations, and aerial platforms. These lightweight, low-power antennas are ideally suited to support the new LEO/MEO satellites for continuous global communications with efficient beam steering and consistent high gain at a fraction of the cost of existing solutions. FreeFall develops space and ground systems using spherical reflector technology from radio astronomy and planetary exploration research. This expertise provides a new perspective on the challenges of high-frequency satellite communication. FreeFall’s technology also has the potential to revolutionize communication for small UAVs and other aerial platforms for efficient Over-The-Horizon command, control, and communication. Various commercial and government organizations recognize FreeFall’s approach as potentially disruptive and of high value. Located in Tucson, Arizona, FreeFall maintains a close working relationship with the University of Arizona, which serves as a continuous source of innovative concepts and a “force multiplier” for technology and product development.
