Hera Systems to launch 9 CubeSats

SHARE

US: Heating up the competition in the small satellite market, a California-based company, Hera Systems plans to launch 9 CubeSat-class spacecrafts in late 2016 to provide commercial imagery of the Earth and mark its entry in the orbital remote-sensing field. These CubeSats will provide images as well as video in near real-time at resolutions of up to one meter over several spectral bands. That initial constellation could lead in time to up to 48 satellites, allowing the company to take images of the same location a number of times per day.
