Satellogic Inc., the remote sensing company, has secured a license from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), marking a significant stride in its US expansion strategy. The license will allow the company to shift operational control of its satellite constellation to US personnel and extend its ground station network to include US-based stations.
The license application for its Aleph-1 Constellation was a crucial move in establishing a US pixel path and broadening support for customers with NOAA requirements.
Satellogic’s services include global tasking capacity, high-quality geospatial data, a unique Constellation-as-a-Service model, and direct satellite sales through its Space Systems program.
Matt Tirman, President of Satellogic, expressed his enthusiasm, stating, “Satellogic’s industry-leading capacity and agility to frequently remap large areas worldwide has driven our commercial solutions and uniquely positioned us to fill a gap for the U.S. and its allies.”
He further noted the growing need for US defense, intelligence, and civilian agencies to collaborate with commercial partners like Satellogic that can provide rapid, accurate, and trusted geospatial data for various global business applications.
This development follows Satellogic’s recent announcement to redomicile to the US, with plans to finalize the process by the first half of 2024. The company anticipates targeting new US intelligence opportunities in 2024, in addition to its current pipeline of international government and commercial opportunities.
