Akash Loops Space Industry Ace, Montauti as VP of Radios

Akash Systems Inc of San Francisco focused on developing and supplying small satellites (CubeSats) and the RF power amplifiers (based on GaN-on-diamond) that power them appoints industry veteran Fabrizio Montauti as VP of radios.

Fabrizio MontautiWith three decades of radio frequency (RF) communications experience, Montauti has been working to deliver radio technologies to the global space satellite communications market.

Montauti’s appointment continues the expansion of the Akash Systems’ core management team, assembled by co-founders Felix Ejeckam and Ty Mitchell since 2016.

“It’s one thing to design effective RF technology. It’s another to deliver that technology to customers through trusted and proven partnerships,” said Ejeckam, CEO and GaN-on-diamond inventor. “Fabrizio has shown a mastery of both skills, and we’re excited to leverage his expertise in conceptualizing and delivering groundbreaking space-qualified radio communications systems to our customers.”

Montauti’s team of engineers expects to deliver its first radio product, a small X/S transceiver, over the next few months to both CubeSat and satellite customers in the Earth observation market, with a Ka/S transceiver shortly thereafter. GaN-on-diamond powers the company’s radio products and allows for what are claimed to be record data rates at highly reduced power consumption levels.

Through his experience in radio product design, customer support, business development, sales and team leadership, Montauti is expected to further Akash’s mission of extending the reach of fast, affordable information across the globe.
