The launch was tonight from the Palmachim air force base. 'Ofek 13' is a radar-based observation satellite and it will be able to provide photographs in any weather day and night * According to the original launch plan, the satellite entered its orbit around the Earth, began transmitting data and underwent a series of initial tests.
The total amount raised by the company to date is about 376 million dollars. Among the investors: Mitsubishi Electric and the Japan Development Bank. CEO of Astroscale Israel: The global economy is more dependent on satellite data than at any time in history, and this dependence is only increasing
A few days ago, the TAU-SAT3 satellite was launched on SpaceX's Falcon 9 launcher, designed to demonstrate optical and quantum communication from space using tiny satellites
The center will make available to entrepreneurs, companies and researchers the infrastructure for the development of small satellites and their components, and will enable the expansion of the ecosystem in the field
The company's chairman, Yoav Leibovitch, spoke to the science website on the occasion of the start of trading in the stock on the New York Stock Exchange. StixPay began trading last week after a merger with Spak
After helping Ukraine with encrypted communication during the war, Elon Musk will be able to help the Iranian people as well, this time not against an enemy from outside but against the government at home that shuts down the internet to suppress demonstrations
Shortly after the outbreak of the war, Ukraine, funded by the US government, requested data from private satellite companies around the world. By the end of April, Ukraine received images from American companies minutes after the data was collected. Recently, these photographs were proof of Ukraine's success in blowing up an airport in Crimea with its state-of-the-art fighter jets
On July 23, 1972, the Landsat satellite was launched, which changed our attitude to the environment. Since then the satellites have been perfected and now NASA is developing the Landsat 10 satellite, which will be able to reveal more details about the destruction of the Earth by humanity
The project, which incorporates OneWeb low-orbit satellites, is expected to accelerate advanced connectivity in aircraft and motorized applications on land and sea
In an interview with the Hidan site, the company's CEO Avi Shabtai explains that the amount of data collected by satellites is enormous and requires smart storage to filter the data that has come down to earth and send only the relevant data when the transmission window to the ground is short
LEXI is the world's first pre-designed satellite with space refueling capabilities. According to the initial agreement between Astroscale and OrbitFab, the spacecraft refueling station will supply Astroscale's planned fleet of satellites with approximately 1000 kg of Xenon, thus significantly increasing the scope of the satellites' activity and their reach.
The tasks are TROPICS, EMIT, JPSS and SWOT. Each of them offers something unique and adds a new way to understand and protect our home
