Barry Matsumori, CEO, BridgeComm

How about a network with more speed, bandwidth and security than terrestrial fiber? That is the promise of laser communications from space. This is the path that Bridgecomm is trailblazing – enabling future space missions using optical communications solutions through a global network of ground stations and complimentary satellite terminals. The company is building up a global network of optical ground terminals with stations in Alaska, Hawaii, the Southwest United States, South America, South Africa, Western Australia, Qatar and Sweden. Hear from Barry Matsumori, CEO of Bridgecomm, on how they plan to revolutionize communications while complementing existing RF communication systems. Barry has an extensive background in the mobile wireless and Space 2.0 sectors. His leadership roles include Senior VP of business development and advanced concepts at Virgin Orbit, Senior VP of sales and business development at SpaceX, and nearly two decades at Qualcomm, where he was VP of Wireless Connectivity.
