Concert Technologies to use C6 Launch to launch its satellites

Press Releases

Concert Technologies and C6 Launch signed a non exclusive launch services agreement. Under the agreement, C6 Launch will provide launch services for several of Concert’s satellites to low Earth orbit from Alcântara Space Center in 2025 and 2026 with subsequent missions to maintain and expand Concert’s constellation of high-resolution imaging systems. These missions will be significant milestones for both companies.

Richard McCammon, CEO of C6 Launch, says, “Concert uses small satellites to provide valuable solutions to their customers and represents the next wave of satellite technology C6 Launch is proud to provide the launch services required to establish their constellation.”

“There is a huge domestic and international market for information driven operations based in Smart Satellite images and IoT services. Partnering with C6 Launch as a launching provider is strategic because departing from Alcantara is vital to reach the orbital planes we are targeting”, says Angelo Menhem, CEO of Concert Technologies.

C6 Sistemas, C6 Launch’s Brazilian subsidiary, will act as primary operator for the mission.
