SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) – Capella Space is collaborating with the US Army’s Space and Missile Defense Technical Center (SMDTC) to meet Army demand for Earth observation by delivering Synthetic-Aperture Radar (SAR) data quickly.

In a statement, Army SMDTC Director Tom Webber said, “SMDTC is looking forward to this relationship with the team at Capella Space.” “Capella is the first company in the United States to commercialize SAR, and it is well-positioned to provide mission-critical support to tactical users and enhance the Army’s crucial mission.”

Capella in the previous years

Capella has signed contracts with the United States Navy, United States Air Force, United States Space Force, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, and the Pentagon Space Development Agency in the recent year. Capella is also backed by In-Q-Tel, the non-profit investment arm of the US intelligence community.

“Every day, the US Armed Forces are tasked with keeping the peace and saving lives across several domains in a state of continual change,” said Payam Banazadeh, CEO and founder of Capella. “To achieve the finest results, you need timely intelligence.”

Capella executives denied to state whether any funding was connected with the CRADA.9
