Leading Space Innovators Join Forces to Create World's First Satellite with Both SAR and Optical Payloads to Revolutionize Geospatial Imaging
Antaris and Other Space Leaders to Revolutionize Imaging with World's First Satellite with Both SAR and Optical Payloads
The four companies intend to solve a vexing legacy challenge for consumers of remote sensing data. Typically, satellite constellation operators have deployed specialized satellites to capture specific types of data. Each image or data point is captured at a unique time from a unique location, making it difficult to correlate data from separate satellites. The new multi-sensor satellite being developed under the MOU will capture, for the first time in history, both SAR data and optical data from the same satellite—improving the ability to correlate the data and its analytical utility. The resulting datasets will have tremendous value for environmental, insurance and defense applications.
