Symbiosis of Data and Space

We unload the technosphere and bring it from planet earth into low earth orbit to leverage solar energy and passive cooling for edge computing and instant data processing.

About Us

Built on the legacy of Neil Armstrong

Our name ARNELL is derived from the famous former Astronaut

Neil Armstrong became the first person to walk on the Moon on July 20, 1969. When he first stepped onto the lunar surface, he famously said: "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."

Inspired by Sir Richard Branson

Michael met Sir Richard at an Entrepreneurship Event and was deeply inspired by his adventures

The billionaire was the first person to reach the edge of space in his own personal spacecraft and sent an inspiring message: "To the next generation of dreamers, if we can do this, just imagine what you can do!"

Based in the epicenter of NewSpace

NewSpace made in Germany at the hotspots of Munich, Neubiberg, Ottobrunn and Oberpfaffenhofen

Being around for quite some time, ESA and ESA BIC as well as its partners like Airbus, DLR and OHB created a thriving ecosystem for NewSpace companies like Arnell.

Orbital Data Center (ODC)

Low Latency and High-Speed Data Transmission

In-space data centers significantly reduce latency for data transmission. With data processing occurring closer to the source and user, the time it takes for information to travel back and forth is minimized. This low-latency advantage is crucial for applications such as real-time communications, autonomous systems, and data-intensive tasks.

Enhanced Security and Privacy

Placing data centers in space offers increased security and privacy. Physical access to in-space data centers is limited, reducing the risk of unauthorized physical tampering. Additionally, the distance from Earth makes it more challenging for hackers to intercept or compromise data during transmission.

Downstream of Insights

ODCs are strategically positioned to support Earth observation and remote sensing applications. Satellite-based sensors capture vast amounts of data, and having processing capabilities in space allows for real-time analysis and decision-making without the need to transmit large volumes of raw data to Earth. This is particularly valuable for applications like weather monitoring, disaster response, and environmental monitoring.

Solar Energy Utilization

In-space data centers harness solar energy in space, where sunlight is abundant and available continuously without interruptions due to atmospheric conditions or day-night cycles. This reliance on renewable energy aligns with ESG goals, reducing the carbon footprint associated with traditional energy sources. In addition, solar energy in space allows for a degree of energy independence, as these data centers can operate without relying on Earth-based power sources. This autonomy enhances resilience and sustainability, contributing positively to environmental considerations.

Passive Cooling Mechanisms

In the vacuum of space, thermal management becomes more efficient due to the absence of a surrounding atmosphere. Passive cooling methods, such as radiative cooling, are leveraged to dissipate heat generated by the data center components. This reduces the reliance on energy-intensive active cooling systems commonly used in terrestrial data centers. By minimizing the need for power-hungry cooling systems, in-space data centers contribute to lower energy consumption and a smaller environmental impact. This aligns with ESG principles by reducing resource usage and emissions associated with cooling infrastructure.

Technosphere Considerations

By moving data processing and storage capabilities to space, there is reduction in the need for expansive terrestrial data centers. This mitigates the environmental impact of constructing and maintaining large-scale data centers on Earth, contributing to more sustainable land use practices. The implementation of in-space data centers prompts a reconsideration of the technosphere, emphasizing the need to manage and utilize space as a limited resource responsibly. This aligns with the governance aspect of ESG, emphasizing ethical and responsible management practices.
