GomSpace to deliver the Mission Control System that KSAT will use to operate the Arctic Weather Satellite
Today, GomSpace signed a contract to develop, deliver and support the Mission Control System that KSAT will use to operate the Arctic Weather Satellite mission.
The contract value is 10 MSEK and the majority of work will be done this year and next year.
The Arctic Weather Satellite is a project funded by the European Space Agency with the purpose to gather atmospheric data for meteorology in the Arctic region. The prime contractor is OHB Sweden and Thales is responsible for the ground segment. The first satellite is planned to be launched in 2024.
"GomSpace is excited to enter into this project consortium and to collaborate with KSAT on the mission control system and operation of this mission. This project will contribute to a better understanding of the atmosphere and the weather, and thereby benefit people that live or work in the Arctic" says Niels Buus, CEO of GomSpace.
