The collaboration will integrate 24/7, all-weather Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data into LiveEO’s disaster response solutions
BERLIN and SAN FRANCISCO, May 11, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — LiveEO, a market leader in Earth observation analytics and solutions for high-value infrastructure and energy asset monitoring, today announced a partnership with Capella Space, the world’s leading provider of high-resolution synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imagery. As the first certified Capella Analytics Partner, LiveEO will integrate all-weather, 24/7 SAR imagery from Capella Space into its advanced analytics platform to transform the monitoring of assets, such as railways, buildings, pipelines, and other infrastructure, and will enable timely insights for disaster response.
