Kepler launched 8 new satellites on SpaceX’s Rideshare

“The increased size accommodates significant technology enhancements, including additional power and antenna capabilities that allows the support of both Ku and narrowband spectrum from a single satellite,” Kepler said. “This multi-spectrum support is achieved with Kepler’s proprietary Software Defined Radio (SDR) which has been proven onboard the five satellites already on orbit.”

Kepler’s launch plans include several additional launches in 2021, with launches planned for the first half of 2021 in March and June, which will add additional GEN1 satellites to the Kepler constellation, the firm said.

“As with today’s launch, these satellites will service the growing customer demand for Global Data Services and increase our ability to provide an industry leading service.”
