The Earth observation system was developed by Elecnor Deimos, who managed the engineering, ground segment, integration, tests, launch contract and LEOP, in collaboration with Satrec Initiative, who provided the platform and the payload.[2] The platform is based on DubaiSat-2 launched in 2013, with a larger battery pack intended to last for at least 7 years.[3] The satellite was purchased by Urthecast in 2015, together with Deimos-1 and Deimos Imaging, the division of Elecnor Deimos that was in charge of the operation of both satellites.[4]

Deimos-2 is currently property of Deimos Imaging, who operates it and commercialises its data.
