Space BD, a leading Japanese space startup providing access to space using the International Space Station (ISS) Japanese Experiment Module “Kibo” and rideshares on Japan’s flagship launch vehicle “H3”, announced that their customer, SATLANTIS MICROSAT S.L. successfully received about 20,000 images from the Integrated Standard Imager for Microsatellites (iSIM) on IVA-Replaceable Small Exposed Experiment Platform (i-SEEP), the external platform attached outside of Kibo since June 2020.

Space BD has been working on the integration of iSIM on i-SEEP since February 2019, providing one-stop support to SATLANTIS for all matters, including scheduling the launch and IOD opportunities, safety reviews following the environmental test results, and support for administrative procedures for SATLANTIS to achieve IOD on the ISS. Space BD will continue its commitment to the project to ensure successful mission completion.
