According to the contract, the CubeSat will be launched as a piggyback payload by the Long March 11 launch vehicle from Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center by the end of 2017, and the CubeSat itself will be deployed by ISIPOD, developed by ISIS, one of the leading companies in small satellite mission, headquartered in Delft, the Netherlands.

The CubeSat developed by Kepler Communications, Canada's pioneering satellite communications company based in Toronto, that is working towards building an in-space telecommunications network for space-borne assets. This mission will be purposed as a technology demonstration to facilitate its constellation in the next stage.

Kepler will launch its first two satellites in late 2017 and have already secured a launch provider and expect to have the complete system in operation by 2022.
