Aphelia builds wireless charging stations for satellite constellations in space. Our proprietary Aphelia’s Receiver subsystem has a 77% size reduction, 93% less mass, and 93% reduction of additional launch cost compared to SpaceX Starlink’s large solar arrays. We are targeting LEO satellite constellation companies (Internet & Broadband) by providing them increased User Capacity while improving their unit economics by having additional high power at the lowest cost/kWh delivered wirelessly to their satellites without relying only on the availability of solar exposure. The commercial sector of the LEO smallsat market value which includes Satcom & information applications will grow from $10.6bil to $38.9bil in 2031, an x4 increase. The global space power supply market is estimated to reach $5.175bil in 2032 from $2.625bil in 2021.
Our Why is to consumerize space exploration. Just like how powerful smartphones nowadays have enabled Digital Economy across many regions on Earth, we aim to enhance satellite technologies so that everyday people on Earth can be part of the Space Economy across many regions in our Solar System. To date, we have received $25k USD grant from a governtment agency and are on track to raise pre-seed investment of $500k USD and another $1mil USD grant from a government ministry to bring our technology to space.
