Capella Space Corporation —
Peacetime Indications & Warning

The Problem This Solution Solves

DoD has a critical need for improved, large scale, situational awareness satisfied by less expensive, day/night, all-weather imaging satellites capable of filling gaps in space-based reconnaissance.  This capability should facilitate timely analysis of emergent threats; allowing the Joint Force to deploy the right capability for a given situation, flex and adapt to the threat, respond to the situation and be unpredictable across an increasingly contested space environment.

The Solution

Capella demonstrated commercial-based, micro-satellite technology capable of observing during the day, night, and all-weather conditions via synthetic aperture radar (SAR) satellite technology.  The size and cost of individual satellites  provide flexibility for launch and replacement allowing the DoD  to leverage the commercialization and peacetime use via data service agreements. Data provided from the payload is provided in a  format capable for ingestion into a cloud-based computing architecture for subsequent machine learning, object detection analysis.

Capella Space Corporation is one of the many companies we have contracted with in a variety of focus areas.

The DIU Commercial Solutions Catalog is a compilation of both our successful and transitioned prototypes. In conjunction with our Department of Defense (DoD) partners, we have evaluated, adapted, and tested these commercial solutions to solve your organization’s AI/ML, autonomy, cyber, human systems, and space challenges.

Prototype “Success Memos,” which enable DoD and U.S. Government (USG) entities to enter into Production Other Transaction agreements without re-competing, are available through DIU.

If you work for a DoD or USG organization, these technology solutions are available for purchase right now. To learn more about whether these capabilities can meet your organization’s unique operational needs or how to acquire them, please send a direct inquiry through DIU’s Contact Us page.
