AAC Clyde Space wins satellite order from NSLComm

(28 January 2020 - AAC Clyde Space) AAC Clyde Space has received an order from Israeli NSLComm for one 6U satellite and services, with a total value of approx. 15 MSEK (GBP 1.2 million).

NSLComm has also appointed AAC Clyde Space "preferred supplier" in its planned satellite constellation.

AAC Clyde Space will manufacture, launch, commission, operate the satellite and deliver a ground segment software solution. The satellite is planned to launch in Q3 2021.

"NSLComm is spearheading high throughput communication from nanosatellites. We are delighted to partner with them in this project, taking nanosatellite-based services even further," said AAC Clyde Space CEO Luis Gomes.

AAC Clyde Space delivered a 6U satellite to NSLComm during 2019. This satellite, NSLSat-1 carrying a 60-centimetre dish antenna, has reached most of its mission goals, communicating at all frequencies. The new satellite, NSLSat-2, is the first satellite of an intended commercial constellation.
