Synspective’s Second SAR Satellite “StriX-β” Successfully Reaches Its Target Orbit

TOKYO, 2022, March 1st – Synspective Inc., a SAR satellite data and solutions provider, announced today that StriX-β, its second SAR satellite, has successfully reached its target orbit. Following this successful launch, we have posted our CEO’s comments on our official YouTube channel: https://bit.ly/3stYFpx

On March 1st (JST), StriX-β was deployed by Rocket Lab’s Electron rocket at Rocket Lab’s Launch Complex on the Mahia Peninsula, New Zealand. The satellite reached target orbit, a Sun-synchronous orbit (SSO), with an altitude of 561km.

Functions including observation and data acquisition will be verified over the next several months. Details will be shared and updated on Synspective’s website.

Synspective founder and CEO, Dr. Motoyuki Arai:
We thank both Rocket Lab and Synspective members for their diligence and teamwork to successfully put StriX-β into orbit promptly despite unforeseen circumstances and challenges  due to the ongoing pandemic.  With the successful insertion of our second SAR satellite, we will be able to improve our technology for operating multiple satellites and strengthen our data services. With this achievement, we will accelerate the expansion of a thirty SAR satellite constellation and enhance our data analysis technology to realize a “learning world” for a sustainable future.

Rocket Lab founder and CEO, Peter Beck:
Congratulations to the team at Synspective for the successful deployment of the second satellite in their constellation. We are proud to continue our partnership with Synspective and to have provided flexibility in the launch timeline. We look forward to our upcoming missions with Synspective as they grow their SAR constellation.
