Neptuno (NEPT 1)

Neptuno [Elecnor Deimos]

Neptuno is the prototype satellite for a LEO cubesat constellation dedicated to maritime surveillance.

The satellite has an automatic real-time monitoring system for alert detection of potentially criminal behaviour patterns, assigning dangerous profiles. The satellite was developed by Elecnor Deimos, together with DHV technology and AEROUM, with the support of several national security institutions of the Spanish Government.

The 3U CubeSat was built using innovative technologies such as 3D printing, AI, intelligent sensing and new materials, in Deimos facilities in Puertollano, Spain. The project has been co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

The satellite will be launched via the ION-SCV 003 deployer on a Falcon-9 v1.2 (Block 5) in June 2021.
