Construction Begins

GHGSat has formally authorized all subcontractors to build flight models of their respective subsystems. With this, GHGSat’s first satellite has taken another significant step towards launch in late 2015, and towards delivering revolutionary emissions monitoring services to the world.

The decision to proceed to this next step was taken after the successful conclusion of full system reviews in early 2014. GHGSat’s team and external experts agreed that the detailed design of the satellite met all mission requirements, with acceptable risk.

Several additional business and technical milestones are planned for 2014 – we look forward to an exciting year!
