WROCLAW, Poland (PRWEB) December 17, 2020
Following the earlier announcement of SatRevolution’s STORK mission, that is aimed at providing hosted payload and Earth observation services, the Company has seen a great interest from both hardware and software customers across the globe. To cater to such increased demand, SatRevolution announces the expansion of the mission to three satellites, thus launching first stage of the STORK constellation.
All three Cubesats will launch in the middle of 2021 to Sun-synchronous orbit at altitude of 500km. Based on the tried and tested 3U Cubesat NanoBus platform, satellites will carry SatRevolution’s optical payload Vision 300, capable of capturing images of up to 5 m resolution, with now expanded capability in RGB+NIR. Currently, some capacity is still available for external payloads.
“Today we are excited to announce the expansion of our STORK mission,” said Grzegorz Zwolinski, Co-founder and CEO of SatRevolution. “We are excited to serve the market needs in both hosted payload segments as well as Earth observation services. We are hoping to capture a segment of medium resolution imagery market before our high resolution capable satellites will see orbit in 2 years from now”.
The innovative shared nature of the mission allows multiple customers to utilize a single platform. Hardware and software providers, as well as current and potential users of imagery data and services, can benefit from decreased capital and operational expenses. Based on such solutions, SatRevolution, along with other prominent companies in the newspace industry, are playing a part in the democratization of access to space and its products.
SatRevolution is a newspace company based in Wroclaw, Poland, offering complete nanosatellite systems and solutions. Founded in 2016 with the idea to build and launch the first Earth Observation constellation in Poland, SatRevolution has recently been co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund for the first stage of the constellation. The company specializes in cubesat and microsat platforms and services with Earth Observation capabilities, with two satellites already in orbit and a number of dedicated and shared platforms on track to launch in 2020 and 2021.
