Kleos Space S.A (ASX:KSS, Frankfurt:KS1), a space-powered Radio Frequency Reconnaissance data-as-a- service (DaaS) company, has received confirmation that the Kleos Polar Vigilance Mission (KSF1) will launch from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station onboard the Spaceflight SXRS-5/SpaceX Transporter-2 Mission targeted for the 29 June 2021 (US).

The four satellites will be deployed into a 525km Sun Synchronous orbit that will increase Kleos overall coverage density in the equatorial region and cover areas North and South of the Kleos Scouting Mission satellites, which successfully launched on in November into a 37-degree inclined orbit.

Kleos uses clusters of four satellites to collect radio transmissions over key areas of interest around the globe and after processing a geospatial data product is delivered to analytics and intelligence entities for government and commercial use – efficiently uncovering the locations of human activity on land and sea.

A third cluster of satellites, the Polar Patrol Mission (KSF2), is scheduled and will launch at the end of this year.
