Operational mission for AIS messages to detect ships.


Next generation Automatic Identification System (AIS) receiver for high ship-detection rates, and a high speed downlink transmitter for high data volume transfers. The satellite is designed to operate in a low inclination orbit to service some of the more remote and not-as-well covered areas of Earth.

In March 2020, EV 9 was sold to Myriota to provide initial service for their IoT communication constellation.
