SAR satellite and Data

Our satellite “StriX”

About small SAR satellite “StriX”

Our original small SAR satellite system “StriX” applies the technological innovations resulting
from the Japanese government program [ImPACT].

These advances allowed us to build a satellite weighing a fraction of the weight of conventional SAR satellites
resulting in manufacturing and launching cost reductions that are passed down to our customers.

Feature and About Data

Sysnpective’s SAR satellites are small, efficient, low cost, and allow for monitoring of the earth’s surface unaffected by bad weather or darkness.

Daily observations of large cities around the globe with high-resolution data constellations

Constellation

Synspective is deploying “Enabler” to companies and governments that have the aim to accomplish sustainable development.
We plan to launch six satellites by 2022, with 25 launches in the future to build a constellation.

In 2020- The first launch
We will launch the first satellite to test and evaluate its performance.

By 2022- 6-satellites constellation
This constellation will have the capacity equivalent to monitoring all the major cities in Asia daily.

By 202X- 25-satellites constellation
This constellation will have the capacity equivalent to monitoring all the major cities all over the world.

We aim to be “Efficient, accountable and resilient world” as stated in our vision.

“StriX”

Why did we name our satellite “StriX”?

“Strix uralensis” is the scientific name of the owl.

An owl is a bird known for its ability to see things clearly at night, and has long been a symbol of knowledge and wisdom in many cultures.
Synspective’s small SAR satellite shares these aspects with the owl and thus we believe it is a fitting name.
