Cubesat built in Monaco reveals new partnership approach (Spacenews article)

Jun 17, 2020

SAN FRANCISCO – The Arianespace Vega rocket flight, scheduled for June 19, is packed with 53 satellites including a GeoOptics CICERO radio occultation cubesat built in Monaco.

Orbital Solutions Monaco (OSM) paid for the six-unit cubesat and manufactured it based on the Tyvak Nano-Satellite Systems design. In return, OSM will share in revenues generated by GeoOptics’ weather satellite fleet.

OSM is eager to make similar arrangements through its Fleet Participation Program with other companies when they are beginning to sell Earth observation data.
