The horse outline in this image is made of solar panels, a design that reflects the region’s horse-racing and horse-breeding traditions. This Guinness Book of World Record holder for “largest image of solar panels” boasts 196,320 solar panels across 345 acres.
The Shanghai Container Terminal Port is in a region that is typically very cloudy, making it difficult to capture imagery through electro-optical (EO) satellites. In Capella’s Stripmap image, in contrast, you can see the port and Changxing Island clearly and gather rich information about the port in real time. This is a significant advantage because […]
The Changjiang Nuclear Power Plant on Hainan island is the first of its kind for energy production in the region, connecting to the electric grid in late 2015. SAR data will serve as a reliable source of intelligence for those seeking timely information on the second phase of the plant’s development where nearly 40 Billion […]
This SAR image shows a solar farm floating on top of the human-made Lake Tiangang in China. The fishery-solar hybrid photovoltaic power station covers approximately half of the lake’s surface and contrasts from the lake’s surface depicted by dark areas in the SAR image. A zoomed in view shows the individual solar arrays on floating […]
The Laizhou Bay Salt Ponds contain hundreds of evaporation ponds where salts are dried to produce organic and inorganic chemicals, such as Bromine. SAR reflects energy differently according to the surface texture and a deeper analysis using microwave remote sensing can indicate the status of individual ponds.
