Open Cosmos satellites successfully launched
Open Cosmos is announcing that its latest two satellites, MANTIS and PLATERO, have successfully reached orbit following the launch of the SpaceX Transporter-9 mission at Vandenberg Space Force Base, California, US.
The launches mark a significant milestone for Open Cosmos. Both satellites will join MENUT launched earlier this year as part of the OpenConstellation, a global, shared Earth Observation satellite infrastructure built and managed by the company.
Data collected from OpenConstellation satellites can be accessed by organisations and businesses of all sizes, as well as national and regional governments to address challenges around the climate crisis, energy, natural resources and more. This is part of Open Cosmos’s wider aim to democratise access to critical space data while keeping high levels of governance and security.
