SAR, Any Hour…Any Where Availability and Grabbing a Beer on the Moon

Payam Banazadeh, Founder and CEO, Capella Space

The technology powering most satellites is remarkably limited. They're unable to image the surface of Earth in areas where it's cloudy or dark--which is about three-quarters of the planet at any given time. Payam Banazadeh, Founder and CEO of Capella Space discusses how this problem is being solved with tiny satellites that use synthetic aperture radar (SAR), a technology that can capture images in any light or weather condition. Payam provides his insights about how small satellites using SAR are opening the door to many new applications, from tracking soil moisture to assess the health of crops to more-accurate mapping for self-driving cars.
