EnduroSat to Design and Build Vyoma’s Space Situational Awareness Satellite Constellation

EnduroSat and Vyoma have announced that they will be working together on Europe’s first commercial mission for in-situ space situational awareness (SSA). Vyoma will use in-orbit optical telescopes to observe space objects and map the orbital environment at a high frequency, thus providing SSA data and services with near-zero latency. EnduroSat will design and build the ESPA microsatellites which will be deployed in a low-Earth orbit

The spacecraft is also equipped with edge computing capabilities for in-orbit processing of the images in real-time and data reduction. The first two pilot satellites are to be launched into space from the end of 2024, as part of a 12-satellite constellation. The data generated by the constellation will enhance current SSA capabilities on the global stage and contribute to space safety, empowering satellite owners to make informed operational decisions efficiently. More importantly, the mission will contribute to the protection of our planet and of assets in space and on Earth originating from space debris and anomalous behaviors.

Commenting on the news, Luisa Buinhas, Co-Founder and CPO of Vyoma stated: “Facing this new reality of ever-growing congestion and perils in orbit, time for action is of the essence. We are proud to have partnered up with EnduroSat, who leverage their expertise to design a spacecraft for Vyoma’s powerful optical instruments. Together, we bring the world a step closer to achieving safety in our orbits, tackling the space sustainability challenge. This partnership also demonstrates that Europe is a hub of excellence in technology and innovation – may a new SSA era begin!”.

“We are honored to be selected for these cutting-edge missions. Vyoma’s goal to make space operations safe and resilient fits perfectly with EnduroSat’s efforts toward streamlined and secure space operations. We are looking forward to delivering this new generation of satellites for the mission and to working on the development of the entire fleet. I would like to congratulate both teams for their exceptional efforts in the last few months and cannot be more enthusiastic about the future.” added Raycho Raychev, Founder and CEO of EnduroSat.
