Sen's vision of creating space TV started when founder Charles Black, whilst still at school, imagined the creation of a space news network that gathered news and information about space and broadcast it to consumers. After graduating and building his first successful internet company, Charles set about building Sen in 2014.
The Sen name itself was created in 2008 when the domain name sen.com was acquired. Sen, pronounced as a word rather than individual letters, stands for Space exploration network, though it could just as easily be Space entertainment network or Space education network as its purpose is to achieve all three.
Sen's vision is to capture space data and make it universally accessible for the benefit of humanity. Sen will give people videos of Earth, other worlds and space, providing multi-world data, analytics and unique new perspectives for humanity.
Our business model is to provide unique data sets and insights with a freemium consumer model, whilst also generating revenues from organisations and businesses for the video derivatives including analytics.
Our vision is to build and consumerize the information layer of space, creating a space data infrastructure suitable for mass consumption, giving new perspectives of Earth and space that can inspire, unite and educate humanity as we become a multi-world species.
We will deploy our first video cameras in Low Earth Orbit and then scale to deep space, including deploying video cameras in Geosynchronous Earth Orbit, the Moon and later Mars, providing multi-world data.
Sen's main satellite platform is a micro satellite called Space TV, designed for multi-world scalability. In addition to very high resolution optical video data, Sen's platform has been designed to carry extra data sensors so that we can gather additional types of data from our Earth, Lunar and Mars constellations.
Sen is writing its own software for analyzing the data we capture to make it useful, providing multi-layered views of the worlds we explore and a valuable 'multivision' service for our customers.
Eventually we are likely to deploy other robotic explorers such as drones to provide further new perspectives of what's going on in space and making the data universally accessible.
Our vision is to explore the Solar System and one day beyond.
