India-based full-stack space-engineering solutions provider Dhruva Space and France-based satellite operator and global connectivity provider Kineis have inked a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA), marking a partnership where both companies will collaborate to establish space and ground infrastructure to scale the diversity and impact of satellite-based solutions.

With 9 satellites in orbit, Kineis' services are operational and providing global worldwide coverage today. Thanks to the launch of 25 satellites, Kineis expands and unlocks new services for new applications with its IoT satellite-based connectivity and develops a new product line to facilitate its integration. The new services include logistics and transport, smart agriculture, maritime, network and infrastructure and many other applications.

As part of its space-as-a-service offering, Dhruva Space builds satellite platforms with multi-payload configurations, widening the company's scope to work with any payload. In November 2022, Dhruva Space successfully deployed two CubeSats Thybolt-1 and Thybolt-2 onboard ISRO's PSLV-C54.

As per the MoA, both companies will move ahead in a bilateral partnership in the establishment of space assets and the offering of satellite-based services. This would include the development and manufacturing of ground terminals powered by Kineis' chipsets, mutual commercialisation of space assets; and satellite earth stations to enable satellite-based services.

Looking forward to the partnership ahead, Ms. Astrid Cousteau, CCO, Kineis, says, "The MoA between Kineis and Dhruva Space is a major milestone for the international positioning of Kineis, combining the French and Indian space knowhow we have exciting times ahead. This agreement confirms the willingness of Kineis to strengthen the go-to-market strategy in India and democratize access to IoT satellite connectivity worldwide".

Sanjay Nekkanti, CEO, Dhruva Space, adds, "The signing of an MoA with Kineis is a reflection of the convergence of goals from both French and Indian Space industries, marking a new phase of growth and collaboration between Kineis and Dhruva Space. This agreement is another promising step in Dhruva Space's global development strategy, in line with the developmental goals of India."

Marking an exciting evolution of the relationship between Kineis and Dhruva Space, the MoA was signed at the 2023 edition of Satellite, organized by Via Satellite. Themed 'Leaning In. Linking Up', satellite has proven to be a consistent hub for global satellite entities to showcase their technologies, share knowledge and build relationships on Earth and beyond.
