SpaceCloud once again headed into orbit as a part of D-Orbit's ION Satellite Carrier onboard SpaceX's Transporter-3 mission that was launched January 13th from Cape Canaveral, Florida.

The mission aims to verify 17 apps, uploading of new ones, and support the on-orbit testing of a hyperspectral camera.

On this mission SpaceCloud hosts 17 evolved applications, and we are now having the ability to upload new applications while in-orbit.

SpaceCloud is now connected to a hyperspectral electro-optical instrument developed by VTT. Having this sensor onboard gives commercial customer applications and third-party services access to satellite images in real-time directly in space.

On our first mission with D-Orbit in June 2021, SpaceCloud was launched for the first time from Cape Canaveral with SpaceX. In that mission, we successfully verified 23 SpaceCloud applications, proving that cloud-based solutions on Earth also work in Space.

The first mission was a great success with a 100% successful verification of all 23 apps onboard.

This launch supports the work that lies as a foundation for future users adopting SpaceCloud into their missions.

It reduces risks and enables further test and development for the continued use of SpaceCloud.

The SpaceDaily news network continues to grow but revenues have never been harder to maintain.

Mangata Networks has closed a $33 million Series A round led by US-based venture capital firm Playground Global to continue its mission to transform the way the world interacts with information.
