GHGSat-C2 Hugo Launched

GHGSat-C2 “Hugo” successfully launched into space at 10:00 ET on 24 January 2021 as part of the SpaceX Transporter -1 mission aboard a Falcon 9 from Cape Canavarel Space Force Station – a rideshare that set a new world record for the largest number of satellites to be launched from a single rocket.

Our satellites each orbit the Earth 15 times a day

GHGSat-C2 “Hugo”

Launch: 2021

Hugo is designed to deliver the same performance as Iris, and marks the ramp up of capacity to measure more sites, more frequently across the globe.

GHGSat-C1 “Iris”

Launch: 2020

Iris, the first commercial satellite, provides up to 10X better performance thanks to technology upgrades that significantly improve her operational performance.

GHGSat-D “Claire”

Launch: 2016

Claire is our technology demonstrator satellite and proved we can accurately detect greenhouse gas emissions from space.
