SpaceQuest Announces Launch of Two New Satellites With Hosted Payloads

December 8th, 2018  

SpaceQuest, Ltd. continues to advance its satellite and space system programs with the launch of two Cubesats aboard Spaceflight’s SSO-A SmallSat Express. The satellites were delivered into orbit aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Vandenberg AFB on Monday, December 3rd.  Both satellites are undergoing on-obit checkout with all subsystems operating nominally.   

The two Cubesats, THEA and BRIO, are hosting experimental payloads for SpaceQuest’s customers.  Operating in a polar, sun-synchronous orbit, the new satellites provide a platform for qualifying advanced technologies to be incorporated into SpaceQuest’s future imaging satellites.  

Dr. Dino Lorenzini, SpaceQuest’s Founder and CEO is proud to be a part of the historic SSO-A mission. “We look forward to future launches with Spaceflight as we continue to expand our satellite bus, integration and hosted payload programs,” Lorenzini said.
