Technology and services you can trust
MetaSensing has kicked off in late 2017 the manufacturing of STARSAR-X, its own multimode space SAR payload operating at X band with up to 30 centimeter resolution and 2 to 4 kW transmitted power.
The payload will be finalized in 2020 and targets small satellites above 150 kg.
The extremely fine resolution of up to 30 cm enables acquisition of images during day and night for intelligence gathering and small deformation monitoring with millimeter accuracy.
A wide coverage of 400 km over maritime areas is intended for ship detection and tracking.
The StarSAR-X is a phase array SAR system with Spotlight, Stripmap, ScanSAR and TopSAR acquisition mode capabilities.
