Corvus-BC 1, ..., 10 (Landmapper-BC 1, ..., 10)

Corvus-BC [Aquila Space]

Astro Digital, formely known as Aquila Space, (formed from the core team of the former Dauria Space daughter Canopus Systems) developed the Corvus-BC earth observation CubeSat (6U).

The Corvus-BC satellites are based on the Perseus-O satellites developed at Canopus Systems, before Dauria and Canopus seperated.

The satellites eature a broad coverage multispectral (Red, Green, NIR) imaging system with a resolution of 22 meters per pixel.

Eventually, Aquila Space plans to send eight to ten satellites into the Landmapper-BC constellation to capture daily, multispectral imagery of the world’s arable land.
