Perseus-M 1, 2

Perseus-M [Canopus Systems US]

The Perseus-M satellites are small maritime surveillance satellites developed by Canopus Systems US, an US American independent affiliate of the Russian Dauria Aerospace.

The Perseus-M satellites are built as pathfinder satellites to the CubeSat (6U) standard and feature an Automatic Identification System (AIS) receiver provided by LuxSapce similar to Dauria's DX 1 prototype satellite. Originally an imaging payload was planned.

Dauria and Canopus Systems also planned to launch eight optical Perseus-O earth observation satellites in late 2015, but this was cancelled.
