cegedim.cloud has been picked to host software solutions for Kinéis’ ground segment — a vital component of the group’s space systems—on a private, secure cloud. This inventive partnership called for demanding technical specifications in the areas of data and access security, service continuity, and linkages amongst the international network of ground stations and partners’ IoT platforms.

Bringing innovation to the French New Space sector, Kinéis will launch the first European nanosatellite constellation dedicated to the internet of things. Kinéis has multiple generations of satellites in orbit for 40 years now. Its low data rate connectivity already handles connections with 20,000 devices used in a wide variety of scientific and environmental applications under the Argos and CLS (Collecte Localisation Satellites) banners, as well as in agricultural, humanitarian, maritime, transport, and logistics fields. In early 2023, Kinéis will launch a constellation of 25 nano-satellites to bolster and improve current services.

cegedim.cloud will be responsible for hosting software solutions for the ground segment of Kinéis’ space system. The solution provided by cegedim.cloud will include :

  • Dedicated, secure platforms monitored 24/7 in accordance with SecNumCloud requirements
  • A hybrid public/private cloud infrastructure
  • Ultra-secure connection points
  • Dual-site production environments
  • A disaster recovery plan
