Mission Space, leading enabler and provider of satellite-based space weather monitoring and EnduroSat, leading provider of software-defined NanoSats and space services for business and academia sign a commercial agreement to launch MissionSpace’s first space weather payload on EnduroSat CubeSat platform. The planned launch is scheduled for Q4 2022 and will carry Mission Space’s set of high energy particle detectors to monitor the conditions of the sun. The new level of data and intelligence will enhance Mission Space proprietary space weather cloud platform and help satellite operators detect solar storms early, quantify risks and monitor increased levels of radiation for better asset protection.
EnduroSat will also be among the first customers of Mission Space space weather data and analytics services, helping to identify and correlate spacecraft anomalies with the intensity and type of recorded high-energy particles.
The launch of this payload marks the first step of the full rollout of the Mission Space sensor constellation and a revolutionary milestone in commercial space weather.
“We are very excited about the opportunity to work with EnduroSat. We have been searching for the right partner for our first mission and the EnduroSat team possesses high attention to detail and deep understanding of small satellite operations. We truly believe that with their help, we will bring our solution to the market faster and easier, revolutionizing the way we currently monitor and forecast space weather risks.” – said Ksenia Moskalenko, CEO & Co-founder of Mission Space.
“We are proud to support Mission Space in creating the first commercial space weather data collecting infrastructure. Generating and analyzing dynamically space weather data from orbit will have a paradigm effect on improving commercial and exploration mission`s success rate and reliability. It will empower timely and informed decisions regarding every next mission`s operations. EnduroSat is looking forward to deploying this unique space weather infrastructure in orbit and working closely with Mission Space toward building their own success story in the coming years.” – said Raycho Raychev, Founder & CEO of EnduroSat.
About Mission Space:
Mission Space is creating the world’s first commercial space weather data collecting space infrastructure. With custom sensors in low Earth orbit (LEO) and advanced models on the ground, Mission Space turns outdated and costly raw data processes into real-time, actionable insights. Mission Space is building a satellite-based space weather nowcast system, designed to serve as a decision support tool to detect, predict and warn about solar storm radiation risks. The cloud platform will offer live space weather updates, tailored radiation hazard warnings, correlational analysis, and industry-specific risk assessments to quantify the risks of solar activity.
