Satellogic, a company developing a constellation of Earth imaging satellites with hyperspectral capabilities, has announced a Multiple Launch Services Agreement (MLA) with China Great Wall Industry Corporation (CGWIC). CGWIC will launch 90 of Satellogic's spacecraft from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center. The first launch—scheduled for later this year—will deliver a dedicated payload of 13 of Satellogic's spacecraft to Low Earth Orbit on a Long March-6 (LM-6) rocket.
The 90 spacecraft that Satellogic announced under this agreement will form an Earth Observation Satellite Constellation that will remap the planet at one meter of resolution every week and dramatically reduce the cost of high-frequency geospatial analytics.
