Kleos Space to dispatch new information gathering technology into orbit

Kleos Space S.A. (ASX: KSS, Frankfurt: KS1), space-controlled Radio Frequency Reconnaissance information supplier, is propelling new information gathering innovation (programming characterized radio payload) incorporated in an In-Space Missions Ltd (In-Space) Faraday-1 shuttle to be propelled into a sun-simultaneous circle from New Zealand on the 3rd July as a major aspect of the Company’s R&D program.

Andy Bowyer, CEO of Kleos Space said: “It has been a pleasure to be part of this innovative service from In-Space, getting technology into Space that adds significant value to the Company and with the imminent launch of our first four satellites from India this is the start of an extremely exciting period for the Company.”

The dispatch of this new innovation is a huge advance on the Company innovation guide to build the scope of target advertises and is notwithstanding the Scouting Mission Satellites anticipating dispatch on PSLV C49 at the Sriharikota Range in India.

Over an expected multi year crucial, the Kleos payload will watch the Earth in a polar circle, gathering income creating information including the: recognition of boat radar for resistance and security applications; examination of range use and determined information administrations in the 2.6GHz 4G band; and a wideband range study supplementing the Kleos Scouting Mission information (155-165MHz piece of the range). This movement frames some portion of the Company’s continuous R&D program to create and test strategies for information assortment advancements for sometime later and is completed inside the setting of the Company’s current technique.

The payload contains another Software-characterized radio (SDR) which is a type of PC that can play out the errand of preparing signals got by the recieving wire and other RF hardware. SDR’s are the essential payload on all Kleos satellites, along these lines this improvement is a key advance on the Company innovation guide to expand the quantity of informational indexes, target markets and income openings.

The facilitating of the payload on the In-Space Faraday satellite will give wide region reconnaissance information and fills in as a demonstrator payload for improved Kleos satellites post Scouting Mission where bunches of four satellites give high exactness geolocation ability.

Miles Ashcroft, CTO of Kleos Space said: “Aside from the potential data sales to be accrued by having assets in orbit, the benefits to our technology roadmap are enormous. Providing opportunities for development of the data infrastructure and delivery, insight into data use scenarios and a perspective on behaviour that allows us to improve flight operations for the Kleos Scouting Mission and inform development of subsequent missions.”

Tony Holt, CTO of In-Space said: “The Kleos payload is co-hosted on the first Faraday mission from In-Space where we have made use of tried and tested satellite technology to offer customers reliable and responsive low cost access to space as a service.”

Doug Liddle, CEO of In-Space said: “We look forward to supporting Kleos over the coming years on their mission and development programmes.”
