Synspective has entered into a partnership with SoSiLA Chuo Rinkan, a logistics facility managed by Sumitomo Corporation (SC), to serve as the manufacturing and mass production base for future SAR satellites. The SoSiLA series focuses on the concepts of sociability, sustainability, and individuality, promoting ESG initiatives through advanced logistics facilities.
In Synspective’s strategic business plan, we’ve outlined a vision to launch a small SAR satellite constellation. Beginning with six units after 2024, we plan to expand to thirty units by the late 2020s. With an eye on the future, we anticipate scaling up our production.
To support our growth, we have forged a partnership with Tokyo Keiki* to establish a mass production facility. This not only strengthens our current infrastructure but also sets the stage for next-generation development. In April 2024, we will kick off operations at this new manufacturing base and are planning to onboard approximately 50 new employees.
