Australian-listed satellite provider Kleos Space is today launching its four Patrol Mission (KSF2) satellites from the Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida onboard the SpaceX Falcon 9 Transporter-4 mission.

Kleos Space CEO Andy Bowyer said, “The launch of our third cluster of four satellites will enable us to further increase the volume of our precision geolocation data. The need for cost-effective intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities has never been greater and we are continuing to rapidly develop our constellation to cater to this demand. Our radio frequency data is increasingly being incorporated into aggregated datasets to enhance or verify other commercial GEOINT datasets.”

Kleos also says it is targeting a constellation of up to 20 satellite clusters, with its fourth cluster, the Observer Mission, scheduled to launch in mid-2022.

The Patrol Mission satellites will be deployed into a 525km Sun Synchronous orbit under a rideshare contract with Spaceflight Inc., and deployed via D-Orbit.

The launch will be live-streamed on Kleos’ website at https://kleos.space/satellite-launch-patrol/ and on the SpaceX website at: https://www.spacex.com/launches/transporter-4/index.html.

Kleos says the latest forecast shows a 30% chance of favorable liftoff conditions, for updates refer to the SpaceX twitter account: https://twitter.com/SpaceX

The four Patrol Mission satellites, flown in formation, will significantly increase Kleos’ global data collection capability by an additional 119 million km² per day and improve the average daily revisit rate over a 15-degree latitude area of interest to around five times a day.
