The NewSpace trend is reaching new heights — engineering smaller payloads, launchers, and devices— all designed to offer innovative solutions for the next frontier. Satellites, however, are particularly expensive due to the large size needed for their dishes, as well as pricey launchers, due to their heavy weight. Israeli space tech startup NSLComm, located near Ben-Gurion Airport, has approached this problem in a wholly new way – it engineers nanosatellites whose shoebox-size allows them to later deploy their large pop-up dishes in space, cutting down on weight, size, cost, and more.
