LatinSat A, B, C, D / AprizeSat 1, ..., 10 / exactView 3, 4, 5, 5R, 6, 11, 12, 13

AprizeSat 3 [SpaceQuest]

LatinSat, later renamed AprizeSat, is a constellation of small Low-Earth-Orbit satellites (64 satellites planned) to achieve a global communication system of data transmission and fixed and mobile asset tracking and monitoring (GMPCS). The satellites also carry experimental payloads.

AprizeSat 3 to 10 also feature an AIS (Automatic Identification System) receiver to gather position data from ships.

AprizeSat 3 and 4 are owned and operated by SpaceQuest for COM DEV/exactEarth. Ownership of AprizeSat 5, 6 and 7 was transferred to exactEarth after a 90 days check out phase. They are known as exactView 5, 6 and 5R (EV 5, 6 and 5R). AprizeSat 8 is owned and operated by SpaceQuest, but might be transferred to exactEarth in the future.
