Astrapi Closes Convertible Note Funding Round

astrapiAstrapi Corporation, a Dallas, TX-based spiral-based signal modulation company, closed a convertible note funding round of undisclosed amount.

The round was led by Ascend Venture Capital, out of Ascend’s second fund, Ascension II, LP.

Led by Dr. Jerrold Prothero, Founder and CEO, Astrapi has moved their proprietary and patented Spiral Modulation (SM) into a Software Defined Radio (SDR) platform and is testing and optimizing the results.
Its technique involves translating communication signals represented as polynomials into sinusoids with continuously varying amplitude. Instantaneous Spectral Analysis (ISA) breaks sharply from current practice, exploiting a continuously non-stationary spectrum to allow for a reduction in the range of frequencies necessary to transmit a signal amplitude sequence. SM potentially provides multiple advantages compared to standard communications, derived from higher spectral efficiency, including: reduced signal power; reduced bandwidth; higher data rates; lower latency; and greater resistance to interference and jamming.
