The American company specializes in the processing of big data, in particular for governments and intelligence services.
A Satellogic NewSat satellite with Palantir’s Edge AI technology was launched into orbit via a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. The launch was carried out on April 1 during the Transporter 4 mission, which carried no less than 40 payloads.
The goal is unsurprisingly to process imagery data in orbit, removing noise from the bulk of data to make the most of the limited bandwidth, and thus provide more opportunities for customers to obtain near real-time data at large scale “.
Satellogic now has 22 satellites in orbit and plans to grow its fleet to 34 by the first quarter of 2023, and 200 by 2025. The company will then have the ability to have daily updated data anywhere on earth.
