KINEIS

IoT constellation of 25 smallsats

KINEIS

In early 2020, KINEIS ordered a constellation of 25 smallsats for the Internet of Things (IoT) from HEMERIA. This constellation benefits from the same industrial consortium as that of ANGELS: HEMERIA for the platforms and solar arrays, THALES ALENIA SPACE for project ownership and SYRLINKS for the payloads.

ANGELS

ANGELS, the first French industrial smallsat designed by HEMERIA in collaboration with CNES, placed into orbit in December 2019, has successfully celebrated two years in Space, thus marking the end of the initial contractual undertaking signed by the two partners.

Rover MMX

CNES has entrusted HEMERIA with the project to design and build solar arrays and harnesses for the MMX Rover which is to land on Phobos in 2024.
