Toronto, August 18th, 2020 – Kepler, a developer of next-generation satellite communications technologies, and Exolaunch, a rideshare launch and deployment solutions provider, signed a launch agreement for two of Kepler’s 6U XL satellites. Under the contract, Exolaunch will provide launch, mission management, integration and deployment services to Kepler’s satellites on a Soyuz rideshare mission, targeted for launch in September, 2020. With Exolaunch providing a quick turnaround for launch and deployment, Kepler now continues its rapid constellation development ahead of its 2020 launch plans.
Kepler Communications was awarded two contributions by the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) to help accelerate developments on electrically steerable antenna technologies for small satellites. This technology will help to improve the data transfer capabilities and economics on Kepler’s growing low-Earth orbit constellation.
Kymeta, the communications company that is completing the connectivity fabric for everything, everywhere, and Kepler Communications, a pioneer of software defined satellite communications, today announced at Satellite 2020 that they have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding to integrate Kepler’s Global Data Service into the just-announced Kymeta™ u8 Terminal and Kymeta Connect™ offering.
Kepler Communications, a Canadian satellite telecommunications pioneer, begins production in its newly commissioned satellite manufacturing facility in Toronto, Canada. It is an essential step towards delivering the company’s proposed fleet of 140 satellites for high-capacity global connectivity services with applications in maritime, agriculture, research and exploration, government, and transportation
Kepler announced today that it has selected SpaceX as launch partner to deliver a portion of its first Low-Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite constellation into space onboard SpaceX’s reusable Falcon 9 launch vehicle.
Kepler Communications, a pioneer of nanosatellite telecommunications solutions, and Cobham SATCOM, a market-leading provider of radio and satellite communications solutions, have today announced a strategic partnership aimed at eliminating barriers to widespread adoption of high capacity data services over Kepler’s Low Earth Orbit (LEO) network.
Kepler Communications, a pioneer in nanosatellite telecommunication services, has demonstrated delivering over 100Mbps connectivity service in the Arctic region to the German icebreaker Polarstern. The vessel is located around 85oN and is the home to the MOSAiC scientific expedition. The demonstration marks the first time in history that the central Arctic is successfully connected through a high-bandwidth satellite network.
Kepler Communications, forerunner of today’s nanosatellite telecommunications solutions, announced today it has opened early-access registration for its Internet of Things (IoT) Developer Kit, which will be available for purchase in Q2 2020. A limited number of early trials will be provided.
TORONTO, Canada (October 7, 2019) – Kepler Communications signs launch agreement with Innovative Space Logistics B.V (ISL) working with GK Launch Services to deploy two satellites into sun-synchronous orbit in Q2-Q3 2020. The satellites will be the first of multiple batches of the next-generation platform, forming part of Kepler’s Low-Earth Orbit (LEO) constellation for global data services.
Kepler was able to successfully track and exchange data with Kymeta’s u7 electronically steered antenna (ESA) and Kepler’s two technology demonstration satellites, achieving data transfer speeds of 15 Mbps down and 5 Mbps up, in repeated trials.
