The FemtoStar Project wants to develop a low-cost satellite network for global communication, with end-to-end encryption, verifiable anonymity, geolocation-resistance by design, and powered by free software, from the user terminal, to the spacecraft, to the ground station. We've named our design FemtoStar, and written a document explaining the proposed system.
We're a small team of developers and hardware guys, not a startup company, and we want to involve the privacy community in every step of the process.
