Xenesis and Hartwell Capitol Consulting ink agreement for global distribution

(3 September 2019 - Xenesis) Xenesis has announced its $212.5 million, 4 year agreement with Hartwell Capitol Consulting (HHC) for HHC’s global distribution of the Xen-Hub, Xenesis’ optical communications laser terminal that’s capable of transporting data at volumes five to ten times greater than other commercial solutions currently available for space to ground communications.

The agreement solidifies Xenesis' entry into several international markets where the need for data transport is underserved, and it provides HHC with exclusive rights to market, distribute, and sell the Xen-Hub in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Israel, India, Australia, Nigeria, Mexico, Singapore, and Brazil.

The CEO of Xenesis, Mark LaPenna said, “We [Xenesis] are to satellite communications what broadband was to dial-up thirty years ago, which is at the very heart of why we are going to ‘win the battle’ for revolutionizing space communications.” When asked about Hartwell Capitol Consulting and its agreement with Xenesis, LaPenna said, “This multi-year deal is a significant step toward achieving that goal. For Xenesis, it establishes a physical presence for the foreseeable future in countries where there is an abundance of opportunity for our technology to make a substantial impact. Their [HHC’s] ability and experience with working within the private and government sectors, both here [in the United States] and abroad, makes them a perfect fit for developing Xenesis’ clientele and proliferating the adoption of our hardware and services.”

Hans Mumm Ph.D., a Lead Consultant with HHC, echoed LaPenna’s sentiment, saying “Xenesis is changing the playing field.” Commenting on the deal between Xenesis and HHC, Mumm—whose credentials include staff positions within the National Security Council (NSC), the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA)— provided his assessment of what the agreement means for secure and reliable, high-speed communications, saying “quite frankly, for the future of our nation [the United States], its military, government, and the high-tech sector, the implications are profound.”
