Argentine Tech company Satellogic launches 10 satellites to provide high-resolution imagery

Post date: 09/11/2020

With these new 10 ÑuSat imaging satellites Buenos Aires-based Earth observation company Satellogic, says it can now move ahead of its rivals in providing high-resolution imagery.

The 10 satellites bring the company’s constellation to 21 satellites, 14 of which provide high-resolution imagery. That constellation, the company said, can provide four million square kilometers of high-resolution images per day at resolutions as sharp as 70 centimeters, including the ability to revisit locations up to four times per day.

“We’ll have essentially more capacity for high-resolution data collection in orbit than any other company in the planet,” claimed Emiliano Kargieman, chief executive of Satellogic, in an interview, putting the company ahead of Maxar and Planet.

Demand from commercial customers is not growing as fast, he argued, because such customers have traditionally used lower resolution imagery. “We are in a mission to change that,” he said.

“We know there’s a lot of value in hyperspectral data. We just don’t think the end customers are yet in a position to make use and leverage it,” he said. Satellogic will continue to pursue hyperspectral imagery, though, he said, believing the demand for it will grow over time.

Kargieman said the company will continue growing its constellation using satellites it builds in house. He didn’t set a goal for the size of the constellation beyond saying the company won’t stop at the 90 satellites it previously said was needed to provide weekly “remapping” of the globe.
