TOKYO -- Infostellar will expand its business of connecting satellites to ground stations, allowing satellite operators to quickly access the data gathered by their eyes in the sky. The Tokyo startup sees strong demand from satellite operators monitoring events on the ground amid geopolitical tensions.

Infostellar's customers are operators of commercial observation satellites. These satellites can take close-up images of the ground, but those images have to be sent back to Earth quickly if they are to be useful. That's where Infostellar comes in.
