GalaxEye partners with IN-SPACe

GalaxEye, a spacetech startup focused on earth observation satellites, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Indian National Space Promotion and Authorization Centre (IN-SPACe), an autonomous agency under the Department of Space. 

The collaboration aims to revolutionize earth observation technology and was formalized through a ceremony at IN-SPACe's Ahmedabad facility.

GalaxEye became the first beneficiary of IN-SPACe’s top-notch coworking as well as testing space based in Ahmedabad through the partnership. The partnership further facilitates the utilization of ISRO’s top-of-the-range laboratories and testing facilities.

Revolutionizing earth observation  


Suyash Singh, Co-founder and CEO of GalaxEye, emphasized the transformative nature of the partnership, stating, "By collaborating with IN-SPACe and leveraging their state-of-the-art facilities, we are poised to revolutionize the way we gather and analyze data from Earth's orbit. This initiative will allow us to deploy India's first privately-led cluster of Earth observation satellites, enhancing our capability to monitor climate patterns, urban development, and natural phenomena with unprecedented precision. 

"Our efforts today are about paving the way for a future where space technology is integral to solving some of our planet's most pressing challenges," Singh said.

Multi-sensor Drishti mission

In 2023, GalaxEye developed India's first drone with Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) and is currently building the country's first private constellation of Earth observation satellites.

The first satellite, known as Drishti Mission, is slated for launch within a year and will be the highest-resolution multi-sensor imaging satellite in the world.

Further, GalaxEye brings to the table its innovative approach with multi-sensor earth observation satellites equipped with the proprietary "Drishti Sensor".

This modern sensor technology helps with cloud cover, which usually inhibits earlier methods of studying planet features.

It provides such organizations an opportunity for discovering something new by giving them images of high quality regardless of any changes in weather and ensures they are always usable.

Revolutionizing decision-making for businesses and governments

According to the company's statement, The partnership is set to revolutionize decision-making for businesses and governments globally by improving the reliability and quality of satellite imagery, even under adverse weather conditions.

It also supports the 'Make in India for the World' initiative, strengthening India’s role as a global leader in space technology and its applications for societal benefit.
