Dauria Aerospace Launches 2 Perseus-M Maritime Surveillance Satellites

June 29, 2014

Dauria Aerospace said it has successfully delivered two Perseus- M spacecraft into low earth orbit.

According to a company release, these satellites will be combined with Dauria's DX1 spacecraft and eight Perseus-O imaging satellites to form the Perseus space monitoring and remote sensing constellation.

Dauria said the maritime segment of the Perseus constellation will track and monitor vessels in open seas and navigable waterways in the United States, Canada, Northern Europe and Russia.

"The launch of the Perseus-M satellites marks a significant achievement for Dauria," says Mike Kokorich, founder and president at Dauria Aerospace. "Once established, the maritime segment of the constellation will provide valuable vessel traffic information to a range of users from captains and ship-owners to coast guard and search and rescue services in the Northern Hemisphere."

The two Perseus-M maritime-surveillance satellites were launched on June 19th aboard a Dnepr rocket.

Canopus Systems, a Mountain View, CA based affiliate of Dauria, developed these satellites which feature a proprietary microsatellite platform and are equipped with commercially oriented experimental Automatic Identification System (AIS) payloads.

Dauria Aerospace is a multinational aerospace company.
