Capella 1, 2 (SpaceCap)

Capella 1 [Capella Space]

Capella Space of California is developing the Capella Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) satellites. They are planned to operate in 30 satellite constellation

The 12U CubeSat based satellites feature a Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) to provide all-weather imagery.

The first satellite, Capella 1 or SpaceCap, is planned for a launch in early 2018 on a multi-satellite launch on a Falcon-9 v1.2 rocket. The second satellite, Capella 2, will be launched as a co-passenger on an Indian PSLV in 2019.

The full constellation of 30 satellites will provide hourly imagery of any location on Earth.
