Sen's vision of creating space TV began when founder Charles Black, whilst still at school, imagined the creation of a space news network that would gather 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 the 'e' could just as easily be 'education' or 'entertainment' because Sen aims to explore, educate and entertain.
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—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. Sen's cameras will be deployed on both its own satellites and as hosted payloads on other spacecraft such as rovers and drones to capture the maximum number of perspectives of what's happening in space, including deploying video cameras on and around the Moon and later Mars, providing multi-world data.
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.
Our mission is to explore the Solar System and one day beyond, democratizing the Universe for all humanity.
