LeoStella, the U.S.-based satellite manufacturer, has successfully delivered its twentieth satellite since its inception in 2019. This accomplishment signals a key milestone in the firm's growth trajectory. The latest delivery, the third of its kind, was made to Loft Orbital Solutions.

LeoStella's 20th satellite was based on its LS-100 bus platform, marking another achievement for the manufacturer. Loft Orbital Solutions continues to express its confidence in the firm by extending its production agreement to secure additional satellites, demonstrating its trust in LeoStella's ability to support its mission of providing reliable orbit access for various payloads.

Pierre-Damien Vaujour, the CEO of Loft Orbital, praised LeoStella's contribution, stating, "LeoStella is a trusted and proven satellite-bus provider. Their commercial-off-the-shelf satellite buses help streamline our production timeline. Coupled with our technologies, we're able to provide our customers with a fast and simple path to orbit."

LeoStella's performance and reliability are reflected in its impressive on-orbit heritage, boasting more than 31 cumulative years. This achievement underscores the firm's high-mission availability, which appeals to both commercial and government customers.

Tim Kienberger, CEO of LeoStella, expressed his pride in the firm's ongoing relationship with Loft Orbital. He said, "Our team manufactured and delivered another spacecraft in less than 13 months from the time of contract extension. Our production line's efficiency and commitment to on-time delivery are significant for Loft Orbital in meeting their customers' needs."

LeoStella has been able to capitalize on its standardized small satellite bus to decrease production costs and timelines, thereby delivering spacecraft efficiently and economically. The versatility of LeoStella's satellite buses is also worth noting, as they can support a variety of payloads without the need for mission-specific configuration, further enhancing the value that the company brings to its customers.
