  • Introducing new Mission-as-a-Service offering (MaaS), providing customers with the option for a dedicated and taskable RF reconnaissance mission
  • Complements the Data-as-a-Service (DaaS) offering, and fulfils the growing demand for dedicated data collection capacity to meet individual intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance mission requirements
  • Kleos has just launched third cluster of four satellites (Patrol), and a fourth satellite cluster (Observer) is preparing for upcoming launch

LUXEMBOURG (Kleos Space PR) — Kleos Space (ASX: KSS, Frankfurt: KS1), a space-powered Radio Frequency Reconnaissance Data-as-a-Service company (DaaS), announces a new product offering, access to dedicated, taskable RF Reconnaissance satellite capacity i.e. a Mission-as-a-Service (MaaS).

Announced today, Kleos is diversifying its business model to include Mission-as-a-Service (MaaS) capability, providing customers with exclusive access to Kleos’ dedicated, in-orbit radio frequency reconnaissance satellite clusters for fixed periods of time and capacity.

Each Mission-as-a-Service contract will be tailored to suit the customer requirements and needs including on the percent of satellite capacity needed, level of taskability required and corresponding data rights.

Kleos’ additional product offer caters to growing market demand and complements its existing DaaS business model, which delivers geolocated RF activity over areas of interest to multiple government and commercial subscribers.

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. Our new Mission-as-a-Service offering delivers that capability to customers.

“Unlike our DaaS business model, which will continue to build, where multiple customers access the same commercial dataset, MaaS is tailored to meet the need of specific ISR requirements of an individual customer mission.  As our constellation grows, we will offer a combination of DaaS data sets and MaaS offering reflecting the balance of needs between the commercial and non-commercial customer we have witnessed developing over the last few years.”

Kleos’ constellation roadmap includes the deployment of new clusters in a short timeframe, increasing accuracy, improving latency and supporting a range of intelligence, defence, security, and commercial missions through enhanced situational awareness. Kleos is targeting up to 20 satellite clusters for optimal global coverage for its DaaS and MaaS offerings.
