Our Satellite: StriX
Synspective’s small SAR satellites technology originated from the government-led innovative R&D programme, ImPACT.
Named after “Strix uralensis”, the scientific name of the owl, our 100kg class SAR satellite can gather data, regardless of weather conditions. The owl is known for its keen eyesight, and like its animal namesake, the StriX satellite can target data with a ground resolution of 1-3m, single polarized (VV), and a swath width of more than 10-30km.
We aims to build a constellation of 6 satellites by 2023 and 30 satellites by the late 2020s. A constellation of 30 satellites in low Earth orbit enables the observation of natural disasters occurring anywhere in the world within 2 hours time frame.
Our ability of agile satellite development and an agile analytics development approach sets us apart from others in our industry. Our reputable teams combine developmental goals with our clients’ specific needs in order to deliver the highest quality service in data analysis.
Global Monitoring System for Society’s Needs
In order to maintain a reliable knowledge of the global economy, we are in the process of developing a global monitoring system which will be launched in 2020 and 2021, these will be the first generation of satellites, StriX-α and StriX-β.
The second generation of satellites are four satellites that allow for commercial data acquisition. These satellites will be built in an industrialized manner and will reflect an updated experience, as well as cater to updated customer needs. These satellites will achieve the daily monitoring and data extraction of major Asian cities.
The third generation would be the creation of an SAR satellite constellation of more than thirty satellites which will collate the data of all metropolitan centres on a daily basis.
