      Muon Space wins over $60 million in new customer contracts for the release of the planned Low-Earth Orbit (LEO) Muon Halo 10 smallsat constellation. Muon Halo’s integrated hardware and software stack plans aim to optimize missions and improve LEO smallsat constellation performance. Muon Space announced the release of Muon Halo on April 4.

      The contracts include the design, build, and operation of 10 satellites ranging in size from 150 kg to 500 kg with remote sensing payloads launching throughout 2025 and 2026. Muon Space did not name the customers.

      “We are providing our customers with an alternative to the launch delays, cost overruns, mission failures, and insufficient operational performance typical in the industry today. With Muon Halo’s cutting-edge space, ground, and cloud building blocks we support the highest performance, and custom mission requirements with a standardized, highly qualified hardware and software platform,” said Jonny Dyer, CEO of Muon Space. 

      Muon Halo incorporates Muon Space’s MuSim digital engineering and simulation platform, the MuOS mission simulation engine, MuSat spacecraft platform design, and MuCore software-defined instrument for remote sensing. 

      Muon Halo comes soon after Muon Space’s second satellite launch of MuSat2 that was launched on the SpaceX rideshare mission in early March.
