(29 March 2021 – KSAT) In a newly signed settlement, Axelspace Company and KSAT are increasing their present partnership on World Floor Community help to additionally embrace knowledge distribution from AxelGlobe, powered by the constellation of GRUS, a 100Kg microsatellite for optical Earth commentary.
With the profitable launch of four satellites (GRUS-1B, 1C, 1D and 1E) from Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, on March 22, 2021, Axelspace is shifting towards its objective of creating AxelGlobe, the next-generation Earth commentary platform, consisting of dozens of GRUS satellites. It’s going to allow Axelspace to observe anywhere on the planet every day, with 2.5-meter decision, when it’s full with at the least 10 satellites in 2023. By introducing AxelGlobe knowledge to their already in depth portfolio of satellites, KSAT can strengthen their optical imagery capability with a brand new useful resource.

“I’m excited to carry us to the subsequent degree with Axelspace because it represents a strengthening of the collaboration into the applying and imagery providers. We’re glad to see the profitable launch of the four GRUS satellites and looking out ahead to exploring future alternatives within the optical imagery area along with Axelspace,” says Kenneth Olafsson, KSAT Gross sales Director Asia.
The GRUS constellation will likely be supported on the KSATlite World Floor Community, and Axelspace will profit from the scalable and API-based KSATlite resolution, optimized for supporting rising satellite tv for pc constellations. KSAT can also be integrating with the Axelspace cloud resolution, pushing the information straight right into a public cloud for processing and storage. Being the one industrial operator of an optical satellite tv for pc constellation in Japan, Axelspace has pioneered that market.
“ We’re a dreamer and a believer that by delivering extra readability of what’s going on in our Planet, we are able to create a local weather for change to have a higher appreciation for Earth’s magnificence and an elevated sense of accountability to guard our solely dwelling. By seeing the Earth from a higher distance, we consider it impacts how we see the world and develop a brand new cognitive framework to make choices. By partnering with KSAT, we hope to empower anybody with actionable Earth Commentary knowledge to make smarter choices.” says Yasu Yamazaki, Chief Enterprise Officer, Axelspace.
Kongsberg Satellite tv for pc Companies (KSAT) is the main supplier of communication providers for spacecraft and launch automobiles from their uniquely situated world floor community. KSAT’s community as we speak spans over 200 antennas at 25 websites throughout the globe (together with Pole to Pole protection from Antarctica to the Arctic), and is consistently increasing. KSAT is proud to be the behind-the-scenes bridge again to Earth, supporting the overwhelming majority of area firms, companies, and start-ups. Moreover, KSAT offers quite a lot of EO providers derived from each Artificial Aperture Radar (SAR) and high-resolution optical satellite tv for pc knowledge.
