Satellite Vu raises £3.6m for Thermal Satellite Insights to Support the Green Industrial Revolution

Satellite Vu has raised a £3.6m (US$5m) seed round led by Seraphim Capital to launch the world’s first satellite constellation capable of imaging the thermal footprint of any building on the planet every one to two hours. Satellite Vu’s constellation of miniaturised satellites will use high resolution infrared cameras to collect temperature data day and night about both the natural and built environment. Being less than 1/10th of the size and cost of other infrared imaging satellites, Satellite Vu is unique in being able to measure the heat signature of any building anywhere multiple times per day. This enables Satellite Vu to derive new insights about both the building and how it is being used.
