Capella Open Data

Capella Space SAR Open Data Program

SAR data has a vast potential for positive economic, societal and environmental outcomes. Capella’s Open Data Program seeks to democratize SAR data and realize the benefits and opportunities of SAR. With the launch and start of operations of our SAR satellites, Capella collects exquisite, very high-resolution SAR data. Capella makes a portion of its historical archived imagery available through the Open Data Program.

Capella wants to invigorate the global SAR community with the three pillars of its Open Data Program.

Innovative Research and Development

Offering very high-resolution SAR data lowers the barriers to interdisciplinary research allowing new insights and novel applications to be developed. Open data encourages new research and provides a standard for the validation and verification of that research, creating transparency and confidence.

Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Education

Capella’s Open Data Program will empower educators to train the next generations of SAR scientists, engineers, data scientists, and applications developers. The program’s goal is to make SAR data as ubiquitous as it is insightful by providing ample datasets for experts and newcomers alike – including an extensive list of resources such as source documentation, training, and example code for processing and analytics.

Humanitarian Missions

Open data has a positive impact on the lives of many people and communities when it is used to improve their welfare and living conditions. The Capella Open Data Program is designed to support those in need with best-in-class SAR data need for economic development to disaster response and recovery. Consequently, as part of the Open Data Program Capella will release high-quality SAR imagery products for major humanitarian crisis events and natural disasters in a timely manner.
