Kleos Space


Kleos Space S.A. is an Earth Observation technology and data as a service company. Kleos Space will deliver global maritime radio signal (RF) activity-based intelligence and geolocation as a service. The first Kleos Space satellite system, known as Kleos Scouting Mission (KSM) launching in 2020, will deliver commercially available data and perform as a technology demonstration. The Scouting Mission will deliver targeted daily geolocation services with a full constellation delivering near-realtime global observation.


Kleos’ initial RF geolocation data products are available in three levels – Guardian RF, data from Kleos satellites at its most fundamental, unprocessed by Kleos geo-location algorithms - Guardian LOCATE, a Kleos processed data set to deliver geo-located RF activity, and - Guardian UDT (user defined data-type), a user defined, customized data set. Kleos data products can be pre-ordered by registered users on a monthly or annual basis and will be delivered to customers after data collection by the Kleos’ mission satellites and having been processed through the Kleos’ algorithms on the ground.


The multi-satellite Scouting Mission system is made up of 4x nano-satellites and will form the foundation of a constellation that delivers a global picture of hidden maritime activity, enhancing the intelligence capability of government and commercial entities when AIS (Automatic Identification System) is defeated, imagery unclear and targets out of patrol range. With the planned further 2 x clusters (12 nano- satellites total) in orbit by end 2021, temporal coverage will increase significantly leading to an even higher value data product. Future missions will include novel sensor deployment  and missions involving in-space precision robotic manufacturing technologies.
