Host Spacecraft

The GeoCarb Project is currently in the process of identifying a Host Spacecraft.  It is expected that the Host Spacecraft provider will also be procuring and managing the launch services and operations.

The GeoCarb instrument plans to be hosted and launched on a commercial geostationary communications platform. This approach leverages the large size of these vehicles, their frequent launch to orbits over large population areas, their wide communications downlink bandwidth, and the availability of competitive pricing rates for hosting.
