We want to revolutionize Earth observation by operating satellites at much lower altitudes than usual. Our satellites will be smaller, lighter and cheaper to launch while achieving a better resolution than today’s devices.
How is this possible?

Our Vision

How can we improve aerodynamics and increase the satellite's lifetime, while reducing drag?
