Jean Loïc Galle, CEO of Thales Alenia Space:

“We are extremely proud to be able to bring our expertise to the development of this major project both for our company but also for our subcontractors and partners. It is the result of successful collaboration between CLS, Nexeya, Syrlinks and Thales Alenia Space, rooted in Thales Alenia Space’s long-standing involvement in the ARGOS programme and the French Space Agency’s Angels/Argos NEO nanosatellite project, which has lent credibility to an innovative system approach based on a very reliable, high-performance nanosat constellation. We are also delighted to bring our solution derived from Meolut-NEXT, certified in 2016 and operational since December 2017. It was a prize-winner in the ‘Humanitarian achievement’ category of the Better Satellite World Awards organised by Space & Satellite Professionals International (SSPI).”


Universal, simple, low consumption, reliable, at a cost accessible to the greatest number, this brand new connectivity has been custom designed for connected objects. Kineis, the first operator of IoT space, relies on its own constellation of nanosatellites. Any object connected with Kineis will be localized and will be able to transmit data in any point, in all latitudes whatever the conditions.
