Jul 2023 | No Comment

Orbital Sidekick (OSK), the global leader in space-based commercial hyperspectral monitoring, has announced the successful launch of GHOSt 3, the third satellite in its planned GHOSt(™) (Global Hyperspectral Observation Satellite) constellation aboard the Transporter 8 rideshare mission. This launch marks the halfway point for deployment of the company’s planned six-satellite constellation. OSK is on track to deploy two more satellites this year aboard the Transporter 9 rideshare mission and by early next year, GHOSt will consist of six equivalent, fully operational microsatellites, each featuring a proprietary hyperspectral imager unique to OSK.

This latest mission comes on the heels of the company’s successful launch of GHOSt 1 and 2 aboard the SpaceX Transporter 7 rideshare mission in April. With three GHOSt satellites in orbit, OSK’s capabilities for delivering enhanced monitoring and intelligence services for its customers are further enhanced.
