Kleos Space Ltd, a space-powered Radio Frequency Reconnaissance data-as-a-service company, has confirmed that the Royal Navy have signed an evaluation contract for Kleos data.
Under the contract, the Royal Navy will have access to Kleos’ geospatial data product: Guardian Locate for evaluation purposes.
“The product delivers geolocated radio frequency transmissions collected over key areas of interest by Kleos’ satellites to complement existing datasets enhancing intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities.”
Kleos’ Senior Military Advisor, Air Cdre Pete Round commented, “we welcome the opportunity to work with one of the world’s oldest and greatest blue water Navy’s and look forward to a positive outcome to the evaluation period”.
Kleos’ satellites collect data that is used to detect and geolocate radio frequency transmissions, enhancing the detection of illegal activity, including piracy, drug and people smuggling, border security challenges and illegal fishing.
Its global activity-based data is sold as-a-service to governments and commercial entities, complementing existing commercial datasets.
