Edinburgh, 7 October 2022. – Geospatial company Satellogic, has signed a three-year agreement with the Government of Albania to develop a dedicated satellite constellation providing the country with responsive satellite imagery capabilities across its sovereign territory, Satellogic said.
Satellogic’s Constellation-as-a-Service model allows for satellite fleet management over a specific area. It also enables the development of an Earth observation imaging program at unparalleled frequency, resolution, and cost, according to the company.
