Starling 1,..., 8

Starling [GOMSpace]

Starling is 3U CubeSat constellation by Aerial & Maritime Ltd., built by GOMSpace.

A&Mís constellation will focus on tracking aviation and maritime traffic between 37į north and south of the equator, roughly as far north as the Mediterranean Sea and Seoul, South Korea, and as far south as the bulk of South America and Auckland, New Zealand.

The constellation is designed to carry Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) payloads for tracking planes, and Automatic Identification System (AIS) payloads for maritime vessels. They are based on technologies inherited from the GOMX 1 and GOMX 3 satellites.

The first eight satellites will be launched in 2019 on an air-launched LauncherOne rocket into a low-inclination orbit.
