The Department of Defense has selected Capella Space to provide the U.S. Navy with synthetic aperture radar data under a new contract.

The company said Wednesday it will deliver airborne SAR imagery and complementary analytics to process the data under the Defense Innovation Unit's Commercial Solutions Opening program.

DoD would receive early access to the SAR imagery and a corresponding user console before the launch of Capella's first operational satellite. The satellite will launch later this year.

The company's upcoming satellite constellation is designed to gather SAR imagery with the capacity to define aircraft and vehicle types operating on Earth. The constellation will also function to continuously monitor weather changes.

“Defense and intelligence agencies utilize Capella's SAR data for a variety of purposes, including disaster recovery, infrastructure monitoring and indications and warnings of potential threats,“ said Payam Banazadeh, CEO and founder of Capella Space.
