This mission consists of two 12U cubesats with faster, more capable ultra-scale processors that unlock in-orbit data analytics and artificial intelligence. Equipped with miniaturized cross-link and precision timing, Pony Express 2 , says the company, is a trailblazer for autonomous teaming in space and true cloud networking.
The Pony Express 1 mission was launched as a hosted payload on Tyvak-0129, a next-generation Tyvak 6U spacecraft.
