ImageSat International and Kleos ink MOU

By on 2 April, 2019

Radio Frequency Reconnaissance data provider Kleos Space has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Israeli-based geospatial intelligence company ImageSat International (iSi).

Under the agreement, the two companies will explore data sharing and service enhancement opportunities in the maritime intelligence space — utilising Kleos’ geolocation data to increase the value of service offerings to iSi’s maritime customer base.

iSi provides space, intelligence and analytical solutions for defence and intelligence customers, including very high resolution satellite services, GEOINT and data analysis. Kleos specialises in maritime geolocation services, utilised by government and commercial entities when vessel’s AIS (Automatic Identification System)s are deactivated, alternate sources of imagery unclear or targets out of patrol range.

The agreement also aims to latency between data collection and dissemination.

Andy Bowyer, CEO of Kleos Space said: “This collaboration is a good example of the value of Kleos’ activity-based maritime reconnaissance information as an extra data-set for end-customers in the defence and intelligence sectors. The launch of our Scouting Mission satellites will enable Kleos to commence generating revenue by delivering this commercially available data-as-a-service through collaboration with strategic global partners within the defence and intelligence sectors.”

According to material released by Kleos, the company aims to launch its initial Scouting Mission satellites on a Rocket Lab Electron rocket from New Zealand by the end of the second quarter of 2019.
