Recently, Kleos Space S.A. (ASX: KSS, Frankfurt: KS1) reached the milestone of daily product delivery collected from a strategically critical area of interest to its early adopter customers.
RF data is collected by the Vigilance Mission (KSF1) satellites and is then processed through Kleos systems to generate intelligence products. The Vigilance Mission RF data collection satellites are in SSO, enabling them to collect data daily from the target area of interest.
Kleos intelligence products provide valuable intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) capability to governments and commercial entities. This complements other intelligence sources to improve the detection of illegal and/or hidden activity such as piracy, drug and people smuggling, illegal fishing, pollution, and border challenges.
Kleos’ CEO, Alan Khalili, said, “Following our announcement at the end of last year confirming that our intelligence product was made available to initial customers, we have now achieved yet another milestone in delivering product daily. We also want to thank our satellite builder partner ISISpace for their ongoing support and service; they have recently brought online a capability in Australia that has been transformational to progress.”
Kleos is a Space-powered defence & intelligence technology Company with operations in Luxembourg, the U.S. and U.K. Kleos uses RF sensors in Space to collect radio transmissions (RF Data) in key areas of interest around the globe. Collected data is processed through Kleos’ proprietary processing platform delivering an intelligence output, in order to efficiently uncover and expose activity on land and sea.

Kleos’ first satellite cluster, the Scouting Mission (KSM), successfully launched in November 2020 and performed as a test and technology demonstration whilst collecting data. The Company’s second satellite cluster, the Vigilance Mission, successfully launched in June 2021 and its Patrol Mission launched in April 2022.
