Kleos Space Team Completes Final Preparations before Launch of Scouting Mission Satellite

Kleos Space S.A., a Luxembourg-based space-powered Radio Frequency Reconnaissance (RF) data-as-a-service (DaaS) company, has confirmed that its team of mission engineers has completed the final preparation of Kleos’ four Scouting Mission satellites prior to launch on board the PSLV C49, scheduled for 7 November 2020.

The Kleos team performed system checkout and mechanical inspection prior to battery charging and fuelling. The satellites were then armed for flight and inserted into their dispensers ready for integration onto the PSLV-C49 launch vehicle.

The India Space Research Organisation announced: “India’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle in its 51st mission (PSLV-C49), will launch EOS-01 as primary satellite along with nine international customer satellites from Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC) SHAR, Sriharikota. The launch is tentatively scheduled at 15:02 local time (10:32 CET) on 7 November 2020, subject to weather conditions”. 

The Scouting Mission satellites will launch into a 37-degree inclination, collecting data over crucial areas of interest such as Strait of Hormuz, South China Sea, East/West Africa, Southern Sea of Japan and the northern Australian coast (e.g. the Timor Sea).

Andy Bowyer, CEO of Kleos Space, concluded: “We are immensely proud of the entire team, they have gone above and beyond the call of duty to get our Scouting satellites launched in the middle of a pandemic. We have moved one step closer to delivering our data products that will enhance situational awareness for our customers”.
