The start-up Prométhée has just raised 2.2 million euros to design the demonstrators of a constellation of Earth observation nanosatellites and a data analysis platform dedicated to developing countries. The round of financing brought together 15 private investors, including three companies that are providing nearly 30% of the funds and will participate in the construction: Hemeria, in Toulouse, which manufactures the nanosatellites of the future CNES Kineis constellation for Argos and IOT, the ADF group, whose subsidiary Latesys built the automated assembly line for OneWeb’s microsatellites, and Comat, in Toulouse, which manufactures nanosatellite motors and attitude control wheels.

Comat integrates the capital of the start-up Prométhée
This Wednesday, October 21, the Toulouse-based company Comat announced that it has integrated the capital of Prométhée via a fundraising. Based in Paris, this start-up founded in January 2020 aims to deploy a new constellation of smallsats dedicated to observation. This initial €2.2 million financing round, which brought together two other space sector players, Hemeria and the ADF Group, will enable the company to develop its digital platform for the exploitation of space data and to prepare technically and financially the launch of its own constellation of nano-satellites by 2023.
