Synspective are going to launch their first commercial prototype StriX-1 later this year. As a result, the company will further accelerate the improvement of operation technology for multiple satellites, strengthen data services, and advance analysis technology.

Three more SAR satellites will be sent into orbit in 2023. Synspective are aiming to build a constellation of 30 SAR satellites by 2026, making it possible to observe natural disasters anywhere in the world within 2 hours. Furthermore, the company are developing a solution that automatically analyzes the satellite data aiming to dramatically improve the world’s disaster response capabilities.
