"I've spent most of my career developing and analyzing a variety of space systems from science to collection and communications. As I look out over the next couple of decades there are a number of technologies that are highly likely to impact our use of space.

Laser communications will be key infrastructure for all of these technologies and Archangel is well positioned to develop and provide this capability as the market emerges." says Ryan Frederic.
