ANGELS is operational !

ANGELS, placed into orbit on 18 December 2019 and with new flight software, is living up to its promises. It is now fully accomplishing the missions for which it was designed by HEMERIA in partnership with the French space agency CNES.
In-orbit commissioning on the ANGELS nanosatellite of the Argos-Neo payload developed by Thales and Syrlinks is progressing nominally. This new mission, the latest addition to the Argos system, will soon be set to enter operational service.
The teams at HEMERIA, KINEIS and CNES will thus be able to take full advantage of this in-orbit demonstrator to lay the groundwork for development of the KINEIS constellation of 25 nanosatellites dedicated to the Internet of Things (IoT).
Developing a new satellite and getting it operational in less than 24 months was a challenge. CNES and HEMERIA have pulled it off by working together in a whole new way to conceive a series of nanosatellites of which ANGELS is the first. Co-funding, knowledge transfer and agile project management have enabled the partners to reach very ambitious goals at reduced cost.
