THE SITUATION
27,000+
pieces of human-made objects are currently being tracked as they orbit the Earth, but that number only includes objects larger than a softball.

The actual quantity of space debris 1mm+ is estimated to be closer to 100 million. 1

2029
More than
24,000
satellites are set to launch in the next 10 years. 2

While this represents great progress for the space economy and human space exploration, it also brings significant risks and challenges.
THE IMPACT ON US
Our lives depend on what's in space. Even the tiniest speck of debris, orbiting at 17,000 miles per hour, can damage satellites and disrupt the space services that have become essential to our daily lives.

Communication

The world uses satellite services for communications and positioning every day. Everything from "Find My iPhone" to disaster response efforts to live event broadcasts rely on this infrastructure.

Climate & Weather

We need space to help with environmental challenges on the ground. Satellites collect valuable data on humanity's impact on land, air, and sea, along with providing tomorrow's weather forecast.

Financial Transactions

Our financial system doesn't work without the ultra-precise timekeeping of GPS satellites. Without them, the stock market, ATMs, and point-of-sale systems grind to a halt.

WHAT WE'RE DOING

We're committed to helping humanity treat the space environment as if our lives depend on it.

Because they do. 

Because they do. 

Privateer is creating the data infrastructure that will enable sustainable growth for the new space economy.

Our proprietary knowledge graph technology offers much-needed enhancements to how we collect and process information about space objects. Even as orbital highways become more congested, this data and the applications built on it will allow space operators to maneuver safely and effectively.

The first of many apps to be built on Privateer’s data engine is Wayfinder: an open-access and near real-time visualization of satellites and debris in Earth orbit.
WHY WE'RE DOING IT

Connection

Our everyday lives rely on space-based services all orbiting safely — from location services to climate monitoring and telecommunications. Privateer enables us to work together in space so we can stay connected on Earth. 

Peace

Our open and transparent platform enables nations, policymakers, and private ventures to share space responsibly, for the benefit of humankind. 

Prosperity

The future of the space economy seems boundless, and the pursuit of opportunities in space is rapidly evolving. Now is the time to establish how we will be stewards of space, ensuring future generations can flourish on the ground, in Earth orbit, and beyond.
