Capella Space created a new satellite design, which was intended to improve live, high resolution, earth images from satellites. The new design allows satellites to provide images of the earth down to 0.5 meters. The company states that the new design is the result of feedback from customers.
The new design by Capella Space means that the company can provide its clients with real-time high-resolution images from space. Some of the company's major clients include the United States government, the United States Air Force, and the National Reconnaissance Office.
The new satellite design uses a ‘synthetic aperture radar’ for images. This means that images can be provided in a 2D format.
