PALM BAY, FL / January 30, 2024 / Reticulate Micro, Inc. (“Reticulate Micro,” “Reticulate” or the “Company”), a defense technology company dedicated to delivering trusted and resilient communications over any transport and in any environment, has announced the formation of Reticulate Space, its new business segment focused on bringing to market breakthrough multi-orbit satellite communications management technologies for government and commercial users.
Reticulate Space will initially focus on defense and selective commercial opportunities, including first responders, broadcasters, and in-flight connectivity and mobility providers. Reticulate Space’s product platform shares Reticulate Micro’s open-source architecture approach and incorporates its VAST™ video compression technology.
“Launching Reticulate Space greatly expands the addressable market for our products. This was a strategic decision for our company to move up the value chain in our core market of resilient communications,” said Joshua Cryer, President and Chief Executive Officer of Reticulate Micro. “Critically, we have recruited a world-class management team of industry insiders with extensive customer relationships and deep insight into their needs.”
The company also announced the senior leadership team of Reticulate Space. David Horton, who joined Reticulate Micro in October 2023 as Chief Operating Officer, will assume the role of President of Reticulate Space.

This compliance process ensured that equipment was built with consistency in performance and quality to mitigate the potential for interference on Inmarsat and adjacent satellite fleets.
Rounding out the team is Paul Scardino, assuming the positions of Executive Vice President, Sales for Reticulate Micro and Chief Strategy Officer for Reticulate Space. Scardino has held senior leadership roles at Comtech, L3Harris Technologies, Speedcast and Globecomm Systems, and brings 35 years of broad expertise across sales, business and product development, program management and business strategy to the company.
