Satellogic has partnered with ABDAS to deliver exclusive access to a dedicated constellation of satellites — the total amount of the agreement is more than $38 million.
As a result of this agreement, ABDAS will have access to a fleet of satellites, which will provide them with multi-spectral imagery from monthly remapping of sites they define within Henan Province, China. Future satellites launched by Satellogic may be added to the constellation.
This agreement includes dedicated launches — coordinated by Satellogic — for fleet deployment and expansion. The partnership also gives ABDAS access to a dedicated platform for satellite tasking, as well as a private cloud for processing, cataloging, and storing images.
ABDAS will have complete operational control of tasking the satellites that comprise their dedicated constellations within Henan Province. While Satellogic’s partners can leverage the company’s in-house data-science capabilities, ABDAS will conduct their own analyses of the images their dedicated constellation collects.
Satellogic’s scientists also leverage the company’s current fleet of spacecraft to deliver planetary-scale insights and solutions for a variety of industries, including agriculture, forestry, oil and gas, and finance and insurance. Using their Earth Observation Satellite Constellation, Satellogic will be able to remap the planet at one meter of resolution every week and dramatically reduce the cost of high-frequency geospatial analytics.
Founded in 2010, Satellogic’s headquarters and R&D facility are located in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Their satellite Assembly, Integration and Test (AIT) facility is located in Montevideo, Uruguay. Other divisions include a data-technology center in Barcelona, Spain; a product-development center in Tel Aviv, Israel; and a business development center in Miami, USA. Satellogic China focuses on exclusive constellation customization, data services, and industrial applications.
Emiliano Kargieman, CEO of Satellogic, said the commitment of Henan Government to embrace innovations in space technology, aid development, and propel forward the competitiveness of its industry serves as a source of inspiration. The company is honored to be partnering with ABDAS to build turn-key infrastructure for the collection, analysis, and implementation of insights from Earth Observation that has the ability to strengthen and support key policy decisions in Henan Province.
Mr. Liu Hui, CEO of ABDAS, added that as the company develops new capabilities and technologies, the firm seeks — above all — to promote open collaboration and innovation capable of supporting key needs and Satellogic is a good partner to offer reliable remote sensing imagery. ABDAS hopes to carry out all-round cooperation with Satellogic in many fields such as satellite development, ground reception, and big data application.
