(“Kleos Space” or “Company”), a state-of-the-art space technology operator who will launch and operate its first earth observation satellite system in early 2019, is pleased to announce the creation of its first wholly owned subsidiary abroad, Australian registered; Kleos Space (Asia Pacific) Pty Ltd (“Kleos Space AP”).

 

The Kleos Space AP office, which will be located in Canberra, Australia, will provide the Company with the opportunity to align itself with the Australian Government’s recent pledge to invest A$500 million to improve Australia’s space-based Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities.

 

Erik Tyler, an Australian national and Executive Director of Kleos Space, will lead the regional subsidiary as its Managing Director.

The data that the Kleos Space satellites gather via geolocated radio transmissions will allow countries to guard borders, protect assets and save lives by delivering global activity-based intelligence and geolocation as a service. The data will be sold for search and rescue, maritime security and regulatory intelligence purposes by users for whom quality geospatial intelligence and signal intelligence is essential. The Scouting mission will deliver a daily service with a full constellation delivering near-real-time global observation.
