GomSpace and Aerial & Maritime Ltd both subsidiaries of GomSpace Sweden AB have entered into a turn-key delivery contract, whereas GomSpace will design, deliver, launch and commission a constellation of satellites into a low-inclination Equatorial orbit. The delivery of the satellites and launch will take place in 2018. The contract has a value of approximately US$6.0 million. The objective of A&M is to own and operate a constellation of nanosatellites to be launched into a low-inclination Equatorial orbit. The satellites will be capable of monitoring the whereabouts of civilian aircraft and vessels in an area spanning from 37 Degrees Northern to 37 Degrees Southern Latitude using ADS-B and AIS signals, respectively.

GomSpace has previously launched test spacecraft such as GomSpaceX-2 (below) to prove the technology.
