  1. ANGELS, France's first industrial nanosatellite, extends the scope of space IoT

    Publishing date:

    October 13, 2020

    Five times more powerful and 10 times smaller than its predecessors, ANGELS has been designed to address the current challenges of New Space: miniaturization, scaled-up performance and very low consumption. This technological wonder is opening up its services to current users and offering IoT players premium access to this new connectivity. ANGELS gives a first taste of the opportunities provided by Kinéis, the first constellation of European nanosatellites dedicated to IoT. Carrying a state-of-the-art ARGOS instrument, ANGELS is the operationnal proof of the success of the French nanosatellite sector, supported by CNES and leading manufacturers such as Thales Alenia Space, HEMERIA and Syrlinks.

  4. Enhanced performance for data collection and search and rescue

    Publishing date:

    April 12, 2006

    One has made its name tracking ocean yachtsmen, while the other has helped to save nearly 19,000 lives since 1982. Developed and operated by a network of international partners, the Argos and Sarsat systems* have evolved continuously to meet new user requirements. Today, a new generation of instruments is being readied for launch.

  5. New Argos and Sarsat instruments in orbit

    Publishing date:

    May 12, 2005

    The latest 2nd-generation Argos and Sarsat instruments joined their predecessors. Launched on May 20 from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, the NOAA-N satellite, renamed NOAA-18, reached its polar geosynchronous orbit at an altitude of 870 km. The power-generating solar arrays as well as the Argos 2 and Sarsat 2 antennas were deployed 1 hour 30 after lift-off. CNES operations teams will switch on the instruments’ processing units, beginning with Sarsat 2 on May 23 in the evening. The in-orbit commissioning will be conducted through late June.
