The satellite will be fitted with a miniaturised ARGOS Néo instrument, which is 10-times smaller than the equivalent previous-generation device. The instrument collects and determines the position of low-power signals and messages sent by the 20,000 ARGOS beacons now in service worldwide.

A new Argos constellation is planned to start in 2022, maybe called Kinéis constellation. Each satellite would be 30 kg, eletric propulsion, with anti-collision capability.

Still operational in Jan 2022.
