Chennai: GalaxEye, a SpaceTech start-up and the first Indian earth observation satellite company, has introduced a high-resolution aerial-based Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) System. The system can perform exceptionally detailed and high-resolution all-weather imaging, even amidst rainy or cloudy conditions.
The in-house developed data fusion technology will deliver insights and data from space, empowering satellite constellations to conduct all-weather imaging without succumbing to the atmospheric hindrances that plagues current single-sensor satellites. This forward technology opens doors for generating highly detailed images through a compact satellite constellation that will eventually achieve global coverage within a 12-hour time frame. The capability of constant all-weather, all-time imaging, combined with precise object geometry analysis, holds immense value across diverse sectors such as Insurance, precision agriculture, accurate property tax assessments, and the monitoring of utilities like transmission lines to name a few.
“India is budding with young space startups and GalacEye stands out among them” endorsed Dr Sudheer Kumar, Director Capacity Building Office, ISRO. “We are keen to see young space talent shaping the future of the Indian Space Economy”, he added.
“Space technology is currently a very active area having several young entrepreneurs. GalaxEye Space, spun out of IIT Madras, has grown by leaps and bounds since its incorporation,” added Dr. V Kamakoti, Director, IIT Madras.
“Along with India’s recent space successes such as the Chandrayaan-3 Mission and National Space Day, this accomplishment adds to underscore the promising landscape of India’s space-tech ecosystem”, boasted Suyash Singh, Co-founder & CEO, GalaxEye Space. .
GalaxEye is now planning to build India’s first and the World’s highest-resolution multi-sensor imaging satellite. It has inked strategic partnerships and commercial contracts with leading organisations, including US-based space software provider Antaris Inc, XDLINX Labs, Ananth Technologies, and Dassault Systemes. It has also submitted a proposal to IN-SPACe seeking invaluable support from ISRO to take its endeavors forward.
