Mission Details


EOS-1 (Radar Imaging Satellite) are satellite imaging missions of ISRO using an active SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) imager to provide continuity of service for RISAT-2. The objective of the RISAT mission is to use the all-weather as well as the day-and-night SAR observation capability in applications such as agriculture, forestry, soil moisture, geology, sea ice, coastal monitoring, object identification, and flood monitoring, but also for military surveillance.

Low Earth Orbit


The KSM (Kleos Scouting Mission) satellites of Kleos Space, a Luxembourg-based New Space geolocation company, will be used for a scouting mission to geolocate maritime radio to guard borders, protect assets, and save lives.

The multi-satellite system (number of satellites has not been revealed) of the Kleos Scouting Mission (KSM) will form the cornerstones of a 20-satellite constellation that will geolocate VHF transmissions from marine vessels to provide global activity-based intelligence data as a service. The Kleos Space constellation will detect radio transmissions and pinpoint their origin and timing, enabling governments and organizations to detect activity such as drug and people smuggling, illegal fishing, and piracy, and also identify those in need of search and rescue at sea.

Lemur-2 z1 to z4

Lemur-2 is the initial constellation of low-Earth orbiting satellites built by Spire. These satellites carry two payloads for meteorology and ship traffic tracking.

The Lemur-2 satellites carry two payloads: STRATOS GPS radio occultation payload and the SENSE AIS-receiver.

M6P 2

M6P is a 6U-CubeSat project being developed by the Lithuanian NanoAvionics as a pathfinder mission for their M6P CubeSat platform. It is a ride-share mission for two customers.

During the mission, NanoAvionics will be testing their 6U (called M6P – Multipurpose 6U Platform) platform based on a modular and highly integral design that extends payload volume. The M6P will be the 4th Lithuanian-built Cubesat and a lot of knowledge and experience will be used gathered from the still active LituanicaSat-2 mission.
