Detraxi, a disruptive cloud-based next-generation satellite network solution provider, has received a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant from the United States Space Force (USSF).

This grant provides the company with the opportunity to participate in customer discovery with key USSF stakeholders at the USSF Pitch Day (SFPD) event, which will take place August 18-19.

Detraxi will compete with several other companies for the SBIR Phase II On-the-Spot Contract Award.

The two-day competitive pitching event provides companies with the opportunity to win spot contract awards to address military space challenges.

Pitchday allows services to move away from the traditional contracting process and take advantage of the innovations offered by SMEs.

Detraxi’s Apparition architecture leverages the power, flexibility, and scalability benefits of cloud computing and the integration of the virtualized Satcom ecosystem.

The resulting highly flexible and scalable digital platform virtualizes satellite networking, moves network management to the cloud, and builds more flexible and agile SatCom.

Michael Spytek, President and Co-Founder of Detraxi, said: The Pentagon recognizes the importance of commercial SatComs strategies in line with SME innovation.

“They also recognize that the satellite industry has missed the bus by adopting cloud technology for better functionality, resoring force and security while reducing costs.

“We are very excited to work with Space Force to help bring next-generation satellite capabilities to fighters.”
