Kineis Announces the First of Five Nanosatellite Launches in 2024

Kineis Announces the First of Five Nanosatellite Launches in 2024

Kinéis has announced the launch window for the first of five launches of its revolutionary nanosatellites dedicated to the Internet of Things. Scheduled to take place between June 10 and July 9, 2024, this event marks a crucial milestone in the development of the Kinéis system.

A revolution in spatial IoT

With its first launch in just a few months’ time, Kinéis is marking a new era in the French space sector with the deployment of its constellation of 25 nanosatellites, the first of its kind in Europe dedicated to the Internet of Things.

Alexandre Tisserant, CEO of Kinéis, declares on this particular occasion: "I’m delighted to announce the launch window for the Kinéis constellation, the first European constellation dedicated to the Internet of Things. With 5 launches scheduled in the upcoming months, Kinéis is in the final stage of bringing this unique project to a reality, four years after its historic fund-raising. All our teams are mobilized to make this event a technical, operational, and commercial success."

Meeting essential connectivity challenges

With almost 90% of the Earth’s surface not covered by terrestrial networks, Kinéis provides a direct response to connectivity needs. The mission of Kinéis’ Space IoT is to connect and locate any object, anywhere on the Earth’s surface, guaranteeing data transmission in near-real time, at low bit rates, with minimal energy consumption.

A commitment to humanity and the environment

Kinéis operates on a global scale, responding to major challenges such as agriculture, water resource management, early detection of forest fires, logistics, maritime activities… The aim is to “keep in touch with what matter” by providing concrete solutions to improve everyday life.

The French Toulouse-based project

The space IoT revolution is being driven by Kinéis, with its 25 “made in France” nanosatellites. The Toulouse-based French space ecosystem, including renowned players such as Hemeria, Thales Alenia Space, Syrlinks, Comat, and CNES, actively supporting Kinéis in this technological revolution. Major financial partners, such as Bpifrance, CLS, BNP Paribas Développement, CELAD, Maison Julien et Kelly Dassault, and Ethics Group, are also contributing to the project’s success.

Mission patch symbol of Kinéis’ vision

As a symbolic signature of this historic mission, Kinéis unveils its patch representing the essential pillars of the project: global connectivity, a network of ground stations, various applications, and the end user.
