Capella (SAR)

Capella Space uses satellites built using radar technology with synthetic aperture (SAR) to track and film small-scale changes on the surface of the Earth in all weather conditions and at any time of the day. For example, in ports and along the open sections of pipelines, on agricultural and open sea fields. Capella Space is a information that introduce new ideas for analytical models, forecasts and business methods, helping in risk management and building clear plans for the future with confidence.
