Demonstrate inter-satellite links, hyperspectral camera and propulsion module.

Description

Demonstrate inter-satellite linking and station keeping capabilities; key enabling technologies for future. Payloads/Demonstrations: Inter-satellite linking, Station keeping, Hyperspectral imaging, ADS-B and AIS receivers. Cold-gas propulsion module.

GomSpace and J.P. Morgan have successfully utilized the GOMX-4 satellites for an in-orbit demonstration (IOD) and tested tokenized value transfer in space. The IOD from GomSpace enabled J.P. Morgan to test the world’s first bank-led tokenized value transfer in space, executed via smart contracts on a blockchain network established between satellites orbiting the earth. GomSpace and J.P. Morgan successfully executed a transaction between two low earth orbit (LEO) satellites, which validated the approach towards a decentralized network where communication with earth is not necessary. This breakthrough opens the door to a potential peer-to-peer DvP (‘data versus payment’) satellite marketplace in the long term, as private companies prepare to launch their own constellations.
