Australian-listed Kleos Space has moved closer to commercialisation of its global maritime geolocation data-as-a-service products with the launch of the company’s initial product range.
Kleos’ RF Reconnaissance data products are available on the site in three levels – Guardian RF, Guardian LOCATE and Guardian UDT – and can be pre-ordered by registered users on a monthly or annual basis.
The data product will be delivered to customers in the summer of 2019 after data collection by the Kleos Scouting Mission (KSM) satellites and having been processed through Kleos’ geolocation algorithms on the ground.
Andy Bowyer, CEO of Kleos Space, said, "Pre-order functionality is a major step towards commercialising our data products to large end-market customers. Our new site clearly defines our product offering and allows end users to pre-order data sets that complement their existing data assets, leading to enhanced accuracy and situational awareness."
The multi-satellite KMS system will form the foundation of a constellation that delivers a global picture of hidden maritime activity, enhancing the intelligence capability of government and commercial entities when the AIS (automatic identification system) is defeated, imagery is unclear and targets are out of patrol range.
"Kleos' independent data products provide defence, security and commercial users with access to a cost-effective daily geolocation intelligence. Our Scouting Mission satellites will provide daily geolocation observation while our planned full constellation will provide near-real time updates," Bowyer added.
"Pre-order functionality and strategic partnerships with intelligence providers will enable Kleos to begin generating revenue from our Scouting Mission satellites following the successful collection of data."
Kleos Space is a space enabled, activity-based intelligence, data as a service company based in Luxembourg. Kleos Space aims to guard borders, protect assets and save lives by delivering global activity-based intelligence and geolocation as a service.
