Capella Federal will transmit satellite radar images of troops to the Pentagon 17:48

Radar satellite manufacturer Capella Space has announced the creation of a special unit dedicated solely to working with the US military. About informs Edition of Space News.

The demand from the Pentagon to shoot at the earth has increased many times since the beginning of the military conflict in Ukraine in 2022. This is especially true of images obtained with the Whitney series Capella devices, which allow you to monitor military equipment around the clock. That’s why the company decided to create a separate division of Capella Federal, which would be led by Eric Traup, a retired US Marine Corps officer, former deputy director of the CIA. Capella Federal will only provide images to government clients and its analysts will work on confidential sites.

Capella’s satellites are designed to capture the Earth’s surface in radio range using synthetic aperture radar. This allows them to “see” through clouds, smoke and fog at any time of the day and “see” the interior of many buildings. At the same time, the quality of public images allows you to confidently identify cars, although, according to some reports, in reality their resolution is much higher. According to the head of the company, it allows you to distinguish people inside buildings. Radar reconnaissance satellites have a number of additional advantages for the military: they are indifferent to traditional forms of camouflage, whether, for example, the use of camouflage, camouflage nets or the deployment of troops in green areas.
