Safe Space for All — Kayhan Space and Precious Payload Team to Boost Access to Space Traffic Management
Partnership brings Kayhan’s autonomous Pathfinder collision avoidance solutions to Precious Payload marketplace.
PARIS, France/ IAC 2022 – September 21, 2022 – With satellite and mission operators grappling with
unprecedented congestion in space, Kayhan Space and Precious Payload today announced a strategic partnership
to provide more access to breakthrough spaceflight safety solutions.
As part of the collaborative agreement, Precious Payload will offer Pathfinder – Kayhan’s collision avoidance and
conjunction assessment software – to satellite operators and space systems developers and integrators who are
utilizing its comprehensive online workflow and solutions portal to build space mission capabilities.
Precious Payload offers operators a broad range of customized tools to design and deploy their tailored mission
requirements, including Launch.ctrl marketplace for satellite launches, mission analysis, launch licensing, ground
station development, insurance procurement, operations, and now a full suite of space traffic management
“We are thrilled to align with Kayhan Space and seamlessly integrate its high-performance autonomous spaceflight
safety tools via flexible service packages available on our marketplace,” said Andrew Maximov, Precious Payload
CEO and Founder. “So many orbits have become extremely crowded and dangerous for launchers and space
missions, and Precious Payload is committed to offering technologies like Kayhan’s collision avoidance and
conjunction assessment innovations to help ensure the sustainability of space for our customers and future
“Satellite and mission operators must minimize their risks by proactively enhancing their spaceflight safety
capabilities to optimize success in key orbits where increasing traffic and debris threatens the sustainability of
space operations,” said Siamak Hesar, Kayhan Space CEO and Co-Founder. “Kayhan Space and Precious Payload
share a strong dedication to spaceflight safety and sustainability, and we are excited to join this popular
marketplace to deliver our complementary solutions in support of that all-important objective for operators.”
Kayhan Pathfinder™ delivers next-gen autonomous spaceflight safety systems that enable operators to make
preemptive maneuvers based on precision analytics to avoid collisions in space.
The cloud-delivered offering utilizes proprietary advanced algorithms along with precise space catalog data,
operators’ GPS positioning signals, propulsion capabilities, and flight plans to simulate, coordinate, and quickly
generate optimal maneuver options in the event of a potential oncoming collision threat or conjunction.
Pathfinder enhances communication and coordination capabilities across operators and delivers Coordinated
Autonomous Avoidance Maneuvers™ in the event of conjunction between two operational satellites.
Users of the Precious Payload marketplace portal can now easily integrate Pathfinder in their overall mission plans
and execution to proactively reduce operational risks in increasingly congested orbits.
The Kayhan Space roadmap leads to a spaceflight safety software solution that encompasses the full mission
lifecycle – from launch and in-orbit collision avoidance maneuvers to deorbiting and decommissioning the
About Kayhan Space
Kayhan Space Corp. is making spaceflight safer with spaceflight safety software-as-a-service that enables satellite
and mission operators to leverage precision data and real-time collaboration capabilities across the industry to
anticipate and avoid conjunction events in space. Kayhan’s autonomous tools allow operators to coordinate safe
avoidance maneuvers for all spacecraft and operators’ missions by reducing response time to collision events by
more than 95%. The risk of a catastrophic collision in orbit is rapidly increasing with the number of satellites bound
for space up ten-fold over the next decade. Kayhan’s next-gen spaceflight safety platform allows operators to run
missions with confidence in increasingly busy but important orbits around the Earth. For more information, visit
