Kleos Space S.A. reports the signing of a commercial agreement with UK headquartered Intelligence Management Support Services Ltd (IMSL) for them to purchase Kleos Scouting Mission Data as a Service and to integrate and sell the Kleos data with related analytics services to government and industry customers around the world.
Through its offices in UK, Australia, New Zealand, Denmark and the United States, IMSL will integrate Kleos Scouting Mission Data and offer analytical services globally post launch. Intelligence domain and data analytics expertise will allow IMSL to deliver significant enterprise capability enhancement from Kleos to customers.
Through a detailed understanding of the user's tasking, IMSL will develop a clear vision of the requirements and efficiently assist the client to fulfil their operational ambitions maximising the utility of Kleos data. Under the non-exclusive agreement, Kleos data scientists will provide support to IMSL for the development of solutions for end-user applications.
Andy Bowyer, CEO of Kleos Space said: "The agreement with IMSL follows in the footsteps of the formation of Kleos Space's UK subsidiary. To access the Pounds 4.6 billion Ministry of Defence-planned spend in Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance programmes to 2026, we need to work with trusted intelligence partners. IMSL is one of the world's leading defence industry service companies, assisting many private organisations and governments with their anti-terrorism and crime monitoring activities."
"IMSL will be able to support our end-users as a customer-oriented and solution-focussed analytics channel partner", added Mr Bowyer.
Andy Green, Managing Director of Intelligence Management Support Services said: "We are very excited and look forward to being part of this innovative venture. IMSL's history of development, in depth interpretation and utilisation of data for customers internationally,fits well into the Kleos model and will offer an immediate product to clients."
The multi-satellite system of the Kleos Scouting Mission will form the cornerstone of a constellation that delivers a global picture of hidden maritime activity that enhances the intelligence capability of government and commercial entities when AIS (Automatic Identification System) is defeated, imagery unclear and targets out of patrol range.
Built by GomSpace, the Kleos Space satellites are on track to be launched on a Rocket Lab Electron rocket from New Zealand in the second quarter of 2019.
The agreement will allow Kleos Space to access the global intelligence market without delay following the successful collection of data from its satellites in Space.
