Hiber 3, 4

Hiber 4 [Hiber]

Hiber 3 and following satellites are 3U CubeSat are the first of Hiber Global's (formerly Magnitude Space) second generation satellites of their communications Cubesat constellation.

The Hiber constellation is to consist initially of 18 to 24 cubesats, later to expanded to 50, which are designed to provide connectivity for IoT (Internet-of-Things) sensors and devices that run on very limited power and are not latency-sensitive.

The second generation 3U CubeSats is only half the size of the initial Hiber 1, and 2 prototypes. The satellites were built by Hiber Global.

Hiber 4 was launched in January 2021 on a SpaceX multi-satellite launch on a Falcon-9 v1.2 (Block 5) rocket. Hiber 3 followed in March 2021 on a Soyuz-2-1a Fregat rocket.

The company plans to start their services with the initial prototype satellites, and more cubesats are planned to launch in 2019 and 2020, increasing service quality.

In October 2021 Hiber announced that it is dropping plans to deploy an Internet-of-Things smallsat constellation, electing instead to provide similar services through a third-party system. Hiber also said that two of the four satellites are no longer operational and the other two have suffered technical issues that prevent Hiber from deploying its anticipated commercial service.
