This new agreement provides SatRev with the flexibility to launch 500 kg over multiple launches to a variety of different orbital planes from the Mojave Air and Space Port in California, USA and/or from other international launch sites as they come online with mission requirements.
Four satellites built by SatRev have already been delivered to Low Earth Orbit by Virgin Orbit's LauncherOne system onboard missions Tubular Bells and Above the Clouds. The parties anticipate launching a new batch of SatRev's satellites as soon as 2023.
Virgin Orbit CEO Dan Hart said, "The team at SatRev continues to advance the frontiers of what is possible to accomplish with a constellation of smaller, more affordable satellites. SatRev has been a great collaborator, and we are excited by what the future holds as they expand their constellation and continue to bring top-notch space services to their international customer base. We're delighted to build upon the strong foundations of this relationship with our latest launch contract, and we look forward to providing launch services for the SatRev team for many years to come."
SatRev CEO Grzegorz Zwolinski said, "Today marks a major milestone for SatRev as we officially announce our Launch Service Agreement with Virgin Orbit. This 3-year partnership further solidifies our commitment to providing reliable and cost-effective access to space for our customers. With Virgin Orbit's proven track record in the industry, we are confident that this collaboration will drive innovation and bring new opportunities for growth. We are excited to work together and bring our shared vision for the future of satellite launch to life."
STORK is a CubeSat for earth observation and technology testing and built and operated by SatRev from Poland. The STORK 3U CubeSats features SatRev's Vision-300 imager with a ground resolution of up to 5m.
SatRev will soon start deploying ScopeSat, with the revolutionary DeploScope technology, which will enable SatRev to collect high resolution data from 6U CubeSats. The STORK and ScopeSat satellites will form the Real-time Earth Observation Constellation, which will provide multispectral mid- and hi-resolution data with a revisit time of 30 minutes.
