Kepler Communications have announced an launch agreement with Dutch-company Innovative Space Logistics B.V. (ISL). The agreement, in partnership with GK Launch Services of Russia, will see two 6U-CubeSat satellites launched into a sun-synchronous orbit during Q2-Q3 2020. The launch will be ISL’s “27th Launch Campaign” and will utilise a Soyuz-2 launch vehicle.


The third of Kepler’s demonstration satellites, called TARS, is due to launch in February 2020, on-board another Soyuz rocket.
