Simplifying SAR with Automated Change Detection

Change Detection Capella Space

In April 2022, Capella Space introduced three new analytics products (Change Detection, Vessel Detection and Global Change Monitoring) within its self-serve satellite tasking Console, enabling customers to automatically pull insights from Capella’s high-resolution Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) imagery. Since introducing those products, customers worldwide have been able to gain critical insights with Capella’s technology across […]

Remote Sensing Brings Volcano Monitoring Toward Real-Time Capability

From 19 September to 5 October 2022, a volcanic eruption took place on the flanks of Piton de la Fournaise volcano in the Indian Ocean. Emerging from an open fissure, molten lava traveled downslope for more than 3 km in two weeks. Efficiently predicting the probable pathways of the lava flow is essential for the […]

Monitoring the Rapidly-Changing High Latitudes with SAR

Climate change has been accelerating rapidly in the arctic and sub-arctic. Air temperatures have increased at a much higher rate than lower latitudes, leading to enhanced permafrost melt, increased wildfire frequency, and changes to the hydrology, physiography, and vegetation of these northern regions. High latitude ecosystems are integral to Earth’s carbon cycle, and provide crucial […]

Authors: Nate Ricklin and Jason Brown Capella’s third-annual hackathon was one for the books! The event that has now become tradition, brought people from across the company to collaborate on the next big synthetic aperture radar (SAR) innovation—or just a fun project.   As you can probably tell from this year’s theme “Hackapella 3.0: Squintier, Slewier, […]

Seeing Rainbows: A Sneak Peek at a Special Capella Project

Once in while it’s fun to look at things—or in our case, Earth—with a different perspective. At Capella Space, we like to challenge ourselves with projects that explore new insights and possibilities for future problem-solving. Last year, we hosted our second annual Capella hackathon, a three-day event where team members came together to creatively explore […]
