On PSLV C49, Spaceflight managed the launch of four demonstration spacecraft for Kleos Space and four Spire Global Lemur-2 cubesats on a rideshare mission on ISRO’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) from India’s Satish Dhawan Space Center.
The Kleos 6U satellites make up the company’s Scouting Mission, which will be foundational in its radio frequency monitoring constellation. The smallsats are the cornerstone of a 20-system constellation that will geolocate VHF transmissions from marine vessels to provide global activity-based intelligence data as a service.
Spaceflight also manifested four Spire Global Lemur-2 3U cubesats to add to its constellation of small, inexpensive satellites in operation for Earth observation, maritime monitoring, communications, meteorology and science.
