By GeoConnexion - 2nd November 2022 - 21:21

Kleos Space, the UK subsidiary of Kleos Space S.A., is to set up operations at the Space Park Leicester, a hub for innovative research, enterprise and education in space and earth observation. Kleos is a ‘space-powered’ Radio Frequency Reconnaissance Data-as-a-Service (DaaS) and Mission-as-a- Service (MaaS) provider. The new UK facility will provide access to a buoyant technology-centred community and state-of-the-art facilities for research, development, and manufacturing. The move is part of a long-term strategy for Kleos’ growth and investment to support the UK market. Kleos is rapidly building its satellite constellation and currently has twelve satellites in space, flown in clusters of four in close formation. The Patrol Mission was launched in April, and a fourth cluster, the Observer Mission, is planned for launch later this year on the Transporter-6 SpaceX mission.
