Synspective, a SAR satellite data and analytics solution provider, announced that it has successfully acquired the image from its third SAR satellite, “StriX-1”.

“StriX-1” was launched by Rocket Lab’s Electron from New Zealand’s Mahia Peninsula launch site on September 16, 2022 (JST) and put into target orbit at an altitude of 561km in a sun-synchronous orbit (SSO). Since then, it has been operating effectively and has successfully observed several places around the world including Venice and its lagoon in Italy.

Comment from Dr. Motoyuki Arai, Founder/CEO of Synspective:

"First of all, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the Syspective members and everyone who contributed to the successful acquisition of data by our "StriX-1." Following the demonstration satellites "StriX-a" and "StriX-ß", our commercial prototype "StriX-1" successfully entered into orbit and acquired data. We are making great strides toward business expansion as well as the construction of a satellite constellation.

In 2023, we concluded many business partnerships both in Japan and overseas and realized again the growing need for SAR satellite data in various fields. With the recent success of image acquisition, we will continue to provide high-frequency and high-quality SAR satellite data in line with the needs of society and customers, as well as enhance our solutions using satellite data in the areas of infrastructure development and disaster mitigation."
