We Are

astrome

PIONEERING MILLIMETRE WAVE WIRELESS TECHNOLOGY

Astrome is pioneering the future of millimter wave wireless communication – be it on earth or from space. GigaMesh is our first product that solves the network congestion problems in 4G infrastructure and paves the way for 5G by providing fibre-like backhaul capacity wirelessly. GigaMesh is also ideal for extending the range of fibre to support rural infrastructure growth.

We are incubated at the Indian Institute of Science which is India’s premier R&D school. We are supported by organizations like Cisco, Analog Devices and IESA. We have received multiple awards for the impact our technology will create on Telecom infrastructure in India.

We use the same technology to build satellite transponders that have 12 times more capacity than traditional Ku/Ka band transponders. Our ultimate vision is to beam internet from space using satellites that carry our transponders.

“Society for Innovation and Development’s STEM Cell incubates deep science start-ups that are commercially viable as well as have societal impact. Astrome fitted the bill perfectly. Here was a company that could revolutionalise the way broadband would be delivered to the end users, anytime, anywhere. The founders being IISc alumni and entrepreneurs with a passion to make a difference, made our decision to incubate them easy,”
