Voyager Space Inc., a global leader in space exploration has announced it has completed the acquisition of a majority stake in San Diego-based Space Micro.

Voyager will provide strategic operations support to help advance Space Micro's technology throughput to civil, commercial, and defense customers.

Space Micro is an innovative, engineering-driven business focused on advancing high-performance satellite communications, digital, and electro-optic systems with 2.8 million hours of space flight heritage.

Space Micro also has a history of providing critical technology for the U.S. Department of Defense, including Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance space payloads, secure laser communications terminals, and is also developing a digital RF-to-optical and optical-to-RF signal converter.

Space Micro developed a 100-Gbps Laser Communications Terminal which has been on orbit for over a year.

"We're pleased to start this year with a new addition to the Voyager family," says Matthew Kuta, President and COO of Voyager Space.

"Space Micro brings innovation, precision, and experience to our technology portfolio."

"As we look at a continuously developing and evolving satellite market, Voyager makes a perfect partner to support our technology capabilities and business operations," says Space Micro Co-Founder and Chairman, David Strobel.

Voyager previously announced a strategic agreement on November 22, 2021 for the intent to acquire Space Micro.

The businessman revitalised the space company using his own funds back in 2017, when it was on the brink of bankruptcy.
