About Loft Orbital

Founded in 2017 in San Francisco, Loft Orbital is a pioneer in the provision of Space Infrastructure as a Service.

We build “shareable” satellites to make access to space much faster and easier. This means that we embark multiple customers on the same satellite, for example to take pictures, support IoT connectivity, act as blockchain nodes, etcetera. This service is powered by our hardware and software products that enable any payload to fly on a standard satellite, reducing the lead-time and risk of a traditional space mission.

Our customers trust us to manage their space infrastructure, so they can focus on what matters most to them: operate their payload and collect their data.

We are 200+ Lofties between our offices in San Francisco (California), Golden (Colorado) and Toulouse (France).
