The power which control space will control Earth
For the first time in history, humankind has technology to commercialise space on a massive scale.
The number of satellites orbiting Earth has been increasing with unprecedented speed and has the number of government and private players in near space. Such a growth will bring new value as well as risks never seen before.
Our mission is to design, build and deliver clever solutions helping humans to safely communicate, operate satellites, travel in space and always return home.

Number of satellites orbiting Earth
What we do:
We are a space telecommunication company and therefore our mission is to ensure resilient communication to satellites and people off this planet in increasingly unstable and hostile conditions.
CORAC's solutions enables satellite operators to on-board multiple payloads supplied by different customers and operate it in single multi-tenant satellite environment in secure manner.

In-orbit SW updates protection
In-orbit software updates are critical for space missions as they ensure the spacecraft's functionality. However, these updates can also pose a significant threat to the spacecraft's stability and security.
TRL 8 - - - - - - - - -
Our solution ensures confidentiality, integrity and availability of uplink command channel as well as downlink channels used for downloading telemetry, Earth observation imagery and many more.

Key lifecycle management
Key lifecycle management is the process of managing cryptographic keys during their lifecycle. Cryptographic keys are critical in ensuring secure communication and data protection. Key lifecycle management involves key generation, distribution, storage, usage, rotation, and destruction.

Don't wait for the future,
let's create it...
We are pleased to propose a joint research project with your entity. The purpose leads to explore new opportunities in the field of space telecommunication and quantum technology. In order to achieve our goals, we believe that collaboration is essential.
Post quantum cryptography
A quantum computer powerful enough is capable of brute-forcing data encrypted with current cryptographic methods. With the newest recommendations of NIST, we improve our capability to ensure confidentiality, integrity, and availability of communications without the need for special HW. Join us in testing technology, drafting migration plans, and implementing first systems based on Post-quantum cryptography..

Randomness is the cornerstone of most cryptographic methods. Simply put, the better randomness we have, the harder it is for potential adversaries to get to our data. We conduct a research related to various sources of randomness for certain space applications. Join our efforts and help us to make future encryption services quantum resistant.

About the Company
Towards (a) secure space
"A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away"
CORAC is a young start-up focused on developing telecommunications and digital access solutions for space applications.
We have a vision of human explorers utilising cyber-resilient space services while fairing to near space and further to the edge of the Solar system.
In 2022, CORAC joined ESA Business incubation center in Prague to conduct a product hypothesis assessment focused on near-space asset access management solutions. In addition to testing product hypotheses, the CORAC team is working on a prototype satellite component and ground station-based device covering secure cryptographic key generation and source code signing/verification for secure on-orbit software updates.
Therefore, all of the technologies listed above have different levels of TRL, please do not hesitate to contact us if you require further information.
