In a significant step towards enhancing global IoT connectivity and Earth Observation, D-Orbit has sealed a launch agreement with Turkish New Space pioneer, Plan-S. The partnership entails the deployment of eight 6U satellites across two missions scheduled between late 2024 and early 2025, utilizing D-Orbit's ION Satellite Carrier for effective constellation placement.

Matteo Lorenzoni, D-Orbit's Head of Sales, expressed enthusiasm over the agreement, highlighting the synergy between D-Orbit's innovative space logistics solutions and Plan-S's vision for accessible space technology. "This collaboration with Plan-S not only aligns with our innovative ethos but also propels us towards enhancing Earth's IoT and observation capabilities," said Lorenzoni.

Plan-S, established in 2021, has rapidly emerged as a key player in the New Space sector, focusing on IoT connectivity, Earth Observation, and comprehensive Space as a Solution (SpaaS) offerings. The company is dedicated to transforming these areas through agile, cost-effective satellite technologies tailored for sectors including maritime, agriculture, and environmental management. Its ambitious plan involves the development of a satellite constellation to achieve global coverage and meet the evolving needs of diverse industries.

Emre Yanmaz, CFO of Plan-S, detailed the decision to partner with D-Orbit, emphasizing the reliability and efficiency of D-Orbit's OTV technology for future satellite deployments. "Our partnership is rooted in a shared commitment to space logistics innovation, setting the stage for a future where space technology addresses critical global challenges," Yanmaz remarked.

The collaboration marks a pivotal moment in the journey of both entities towards revolutionizing space logistics and technology. Plan-S has made significant strides in the satellite domain, designing and deploying a series of satellites aimed at IoT connectivity and initiating Earth Observation capabilities. Noteworthy is the rapid development and launch success of satellites such as Connecta T1.1 and Connecta T1.2, demonstrating Plan-S's ability to swiftly meet market demands.

Operating from Turkey, Plan-S stands at the forefront of the country's satellite technology innovation, driving progress in IoT connectivity and Earth Observation. Through its comprehensive SpaaS model, Plan-S offers end-to-end support for satellite missions, from design to deployment, ensuring tailored solutions that address specific challenges and foster innovation.

As both companies embark on this partnership, their combined efforts are expected to significantly impact IoT and Earth Observation, paving the way for a more integrated and sustainable future in space logistics and technology.
