Luxembourg new space firm Kleos Space has announced a new Mission-as-a-Service (MaaS) offering, providing customers with access to its dedicated, in-orbit radio frequency reconnaissance satellite clusters.

Already providing a Data-as-a-Service (DaaS), the move into MaaS aims to feed a growing demand for dedicated data collection capacity to meet individual intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance mission requirements.

Kleos Space CEO Andy Bowyer said: “Our discussions with government departments, national security agencies and commercial entities have highlighted a growing need for a dedicated mission capability, including unrestricted access and utilisation of sensor outputs. Our new Mission-as-a-Service offering delivers that capability to customers at a revenue level that achieves our targets without the ramp up period.”

According to Kleos, each Mission-as-a-Service contract will be tailored to suit customer requirements and needs including on the percent of satellite capacity needed, level of taskability required and corresponding data rights. It will continue its DaaS business model working offering multiple customers access to the same commercial dataset.

“This blend of offering reflects the balance of needs between the commercial and non-commercial customer we have witnessed developing over the last few years,” the firm writes.

Kleos recently launched third cluster of four satellites (Patrol), and a fourth satellite cluster (Observer) is preparing for launch in mid-2022. These satellite clusters form the foundation of a global constellation of up to 20 satellite clusters, which will deliver high value global observation.

Kleos Space was founded in Luxembourg in 2017 by British national Andy Bowyer. Its space-enabled radio frequency Reconnaissance data-as-a-service locates radio transmissions in key areas of interest around the globe, uncovering data points to expose illegal activity on land and sea. Kleos is listed on the Australian Stock Exchange.
