KSF3: OBSERVER

KLEOS IS LAUNCHING & OPERATING MISSIONS OF FOUR SATELLITES

Creating a constellation that provides critical coverage for monitoring global events and key locations of interest.


Observer Mission (KSF3) satellites are targeted to launch before the end of 2022 from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida onboard the SpaceX Falcon 9 Transporter-6 mission.

OBSERVER Mission

Launching into a 500-600km Sun Synchronous orbit, the four Observer Mission satellites expand Kleos’ data collection capability by up to an additional 119 million km² per day. This mission also enables Kleos to increase its average daily revisit rate over a 15-degree latitude area of interest to around five times a day.

Kleos’ fourth cluster manifest to launch on the next SpaceX Transporter Mission

Observer Mission (KSF3) satellites is manifested to launch on the Transporter-6 SpaceX mission NET  October 2022.

The Observer Mission satellites will be deployed into a Sun Synchronous orbit from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida. Spaceflight Inc. contracted the launch and integration services from ISILAUNCH on behalf of Kleos.

Observer Mission ready for launch integration; completes final testing milestone

 The Observer Mission (KSF3), is ready to be shipped to the launch site after successfully completing environmental test phases.

The Observer Mission satellites have successfully completed all System Assembly and Integration and Test (SAIT) activities, followed by system level electrical and mechanical functionality verification, including environmental testing of the satellites. Each system has been subjected to vibration, thermal, and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) tests, ensuring functionality of the cluster after launch for the duration of the mission.

Our Mission:

The development of our KSF1 satellites progressed at an incredible pace. We are leveraging the experience of our satellite builder, Netherlands-based ISISPACE, to develop and deliver quickly as well as improve our hardware and software capability. We are rapidly building our constellation in 2021 with two satellite launches planned this year. Each satellite cluster increases the volume and value of our radio frequency geolocation data, enabling tiered subscription licences for governments and commercial entities.
