To address new threats and unfriendly actions in Space, France has a goal: to monitor Space, from Space. Against this backdrop, CNES awarded HEMERIA the YODA project (French acronym for “eyes in orbit for an agile demonstrator”), the aim of which is to design and supply a demonstrator for two reconnaissance smallsats in geostationary orbit, to protect French military satellites from suspicious, or even hostile maneuvers.
HEMERIA has been selected by the French Ministry for the Economy, Finance and Recovery as a beneficiary of the “France Relance” recovery plan, under the ASTROID project (Advanced Satellite Technology, Radio Occultation and IoD Demonstrator), which consists of in-orbit testing (IOT) on a HEMERIA smallsat platform of equipment and technological solutions from 6 partners (ANYWAVES, COMAT, CS GROUP, MECANO ID, STEEL and SYNTONY) to qualify them for an operational environment.
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, 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.
