Vector, a scalable solution provider for the satellite market space, in a recent statement on Friday, Jan. 11th 2019, announced to conduct a dedicated launch of a nanosatellite for Hiber, a Dutch company with two nanosatellites already in orbit, using its Vector-R dedicate satellite launch system, with rapid launch capability, later this year from the Pacific Spaceport Complex – Alaska, formerly the Kodiak Launch Complex, in Kodiak, Alaska.
According to Robert R. Cleave, Chief Revenue Officer at Vector, the satellite launch always comes with many inherent risk factors, but the company’s dedicated launch model significantly reduces that risk for satellite operators. Adding further he said that the company is thrilled to have Hiber as one of its first payload customers, and are extremely honored to have landed this important launch mission.
According to Maarten Engelen, Chief Technology Officer at Hiber, Vector is an important partner whose help will ensure Hiber achieves its goals. Their product offering and the payload size matches Hiber’s need to achieve orbit. Hiber which was founded in 2016, is a start-up in the booming NewSpace industry, and as of that, it is critically important for it to work with a company like Vector, who has the kind of background and expertise that will help them to continue successfully launching satellites. Vector working closely with Hiber’s team has ensured a sense of confidence, and the company looks forward to working with the team on the launch of its 3rd nanosatellite and on missions to come.
