About StriX-1

StriX-1 is the company’s third SAR satellite following StriX-a and StriX-ß, which were launched in December 2021 and March 2022 respectively with Rocket Lab.

Unlike the previous two satellites, which are classified as demonstration satellites, StriX-1 is our first commercial satellite for full-scale business expansion. This is in anticipation of the production and operation of multiple satellites in the future, with improved batteries and faster downlink speeds to capture more data and meet the needs of a wide range of customers from government to the private sector.

Following StriX-1, three more satellites will be into orbit by the end of 2023. This will bring the company closer to a planned constellation of 30 satellites for 2026 to enable wide-area, high-frequency Earth observation.
