London, 4 October 2023.- Capella Space Corp, an American space technology company, announced the moving into a new facility. The new 32,000 square foot property is in Louisville and will be able to accommodate more than 150 employees.

The new facility intends to accommodate a growing team in Colorado with more office space. It will support the accelerating demand for the launch of new synthetic aperture radar (SAR) satellites with a larger floor for satellite manufacturing, assembly, and testing. 

“Capella is driven by a culture of rapid iteration and agile innovation that has quickly outgrown our previous office in Colorado,” said Payam Banazadeh, Founder and CEO of Capella Space. “We provide customers across business sectors with reliable information that enables deeper understanding of the world for better decision making, and our new space will enable us to rapidly manufacture and deploy more satellites to meet the growing demand for timely and reliable SAR imagery.”

Capella Space first established its presence in Colorado in 2017, shortly after it was founded. Since this, the business has grown with awards for a Commercial Radar Contract from the US National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), a multi-year blanket purchase agreement from NASA, and a contract for Proliferated Low Earth Satellite-based services awarded by the US Defence Information Systems Agency through the US Space Systems Command.
