Kleos finalises launch preparations for scouting mission satellites

By

Final preparations are underway for the imminent launch of its scouting mission satellites by Kleos Space from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Chennai, India.

The Australian-listed space technology operator says its mission team will carry out the final preparation steps prior to handing the nanosatellites over to New Space India (NSIL) for integration with the launch vehicle, including carrying out spacecraft checkout, battery charging, fuelling, setting the final spacecraft flight configuration and overseeing the dispenser integration.

The rideshare mission to be conducted by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) features satellites from other organisations including Spire Global.

CEO of Kleos Space, Andy Bowyer said, “The launch of our Scouting Mission satellites from Chennai is imminent. Our combined team is undertaking final preparations for our satellites to be integrated with the PSLV launch vehicle.



“Following launch, spacecraft operation engineers will guide the satellites from launch vehicle separation until they are established in their final orbit. This is an important milestone for Kleos as it will enable us to commence data delivery and revenue generation from early adopter contracts.

“We are seeing increasing demand for our global maritime geolocation intelligence data, which will enhance the ISR capabilities of governments and commercial entities. Our independent intelligence will complement existing datasets to enable the detection of hidden maritime activity such as drug and people smuggling, piracy, pollution and illegal fishing.”
