Since 2007, ISIS has been carrying out numerous successful launch campaigns for small satellite through its launch services subsidiary Innovative Space Logistics (ISL) and it is one of the leading players in the small satellite launch business. To date, ISIS and ISL have executed or supported more than 10 launch campaigns on various launch vehicles, successfully sending 250 satellites into orbit.
The motto of our ISILaunch Services is to make the launch of your small satellite as simple and ‘easy’ as possible, for you. We can offer you a complete package deal, taking care of all aspects of the launch, or we can offer you a solution tailored to your specific needs.
ISL offers regular piggyback launch opportunities for small spacecraft, to low earth orbit on a variety of different launch vehicles. Different orbit types and specific launch periods may also available on request.
Coordination and negotiation of reservation of a suitable launch slot on one of the identified launch opportunities.
Technical and programmatic management, including arrangement & coordination of the pre-launch deployer integration campaign.
Arrangement and coordination of the technical interfaces, equipment and documentation required for launch acceptance.
Coordination of flight hardware logistics to the launch site and facilitating travel of personnel to and from integration facilities.
Arrangement of launch adapter (slot)/separation system included. For CubeSats, ISIS deployment systems for 1U up to 16U available.
Final preparation campaign at the launch site, with final checkout of payloads and integration of payloads to the launch vehicle.
It is our goal to take away as much work from you as possible, to allow you to focus on the development of your satellite. Below you will find an overview of the process of getting to a launch contract.
Fill in the contact form below. Here we ask you to provide some elementary information about your satellite, which we will treat confidentially.
We will use this information to look for an opportunity that suits your needs. Upon your inquiry we will get in touch with you and guide you through the process.
Once your satellite is ready for launch ISL will arrange the logistics from your facility to ours for integration into its launch adapter.
The satellite is shipped to the launch site where we perform the integration of the satellite onto the launch vehicle.
Our mission ends when yours is launched and your satellite is delivered safely into orbit.
ISIS has developed great expertise and heritage in launch vehicle accomodation and various deployment systems for small satellites. The company offers a range of standardized CubeSat dispensers as well as customized solutions for non-CubeSat customers. In addition to our family of CubeSat deployers we have experience with working with third party microsat deployers as well. Should you look for a launch and you already have a deployer in mind, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
