[Via Satellite 10-15-2014] The Korea Aerospace Research Institute (KARI) has selected Innovative Solutions in Space (ISIS) for the launch of multiple CubeSats through ISIS’ ISILaunch services for small satellites. ISIS will be responsible for the launch of five satellites in 2015, developed under the first rounds of the University Cube Satellites Mission and Design Contest in South Korea.

Teams from Chosun University, Chungnam University, Korea Aerospace University, Kyung Hee University and Yonsei University developed the CubeSats. ISIS will deploy the spacecraft using its QuadPack deployer systems onboard the 2015 Sherpa launch of the company’s U.S. launch services partner Spaceflight Inc.

“We know most of the involved teams already as customers for our subsystems and equipment, and it’s great to be able to launch their satellites now as well,” said Abe Bonnema, ISIS co-founder and marketing director.
