WHITEFISH, Montana — Startup nanosatellite telecommunications constellation operator Sky and Space Global on Aug. 24 said it had converted a letter of intent with an African communications company into a firm contract expected to generate between $10 million and $35 million in annual wholesale revenue for the customer.

The revenue potential assumes that Sky and Space Global (SSG), whose first three narrowband voce and messaging communications satellites were launched in June and are now in service, succeeds in launching about 200 similar equatorial-orbit spacecraft starting in 2018.
