Twin entrepreneurs behind RadioBro target mini-satellite, aviation opportunities

PARIS — Twin brothers Mark and Eric Becnel built their first mini-satellite while attending the University of Alabama in Huntsville. Now 27, they operate a company that has developed communications radios for small spacecraft and a data logging kit for aircraft testing that will be on exhibit at the Paris Air Show.

“We plan to stay on the cutting edge of developing new small spacecraft components,” says Mark, who is president of Madison-based RadioBro Corp. “And we have a found a massive need to make aviation testing easier and faster.”

Mark and Eric launched RadioBro in March 2014 and had a prototype of their MiniSatCom transceiver by June. They quickly put it into production, and they’ve already sold the powerful, lightweight spacecraft radios to customers in places as far away as Taiwan and Romania.
