Earth Observation firm Satellogic is enhancing its operations in the Asia-Pacific with the appointment of Ken Fritschel, Vice President, International Sales, Satellogic, who will be based in Australia.
“Our growing presence in Australia, overseen by one of our key executives, will provide a direct connection to the APAC region so we can more easily work with our commercial customers and close public sector allies across Oceania and Asia,” said Emiliano Kargieman, CEO and Co-Founder of Satellogic.
“Australia is committed to keeping supply chains open and believes in the democratisation of space, which is the core of our mission.
“We look forward to continuing to collaborate with organisations in the country and across the region as we further expand access to Earth Observation data worldwide, in order to help solve the biggest global challenges that we are facing.”
Satellogic currently operates more than 20 high-resolution EO satellites and expects to grow its constellation to 34 by Q1 2023.
By 2025, the company expects to have more than 200 satellites in orbit to provide daily remaps of the entire surface of the Earth, with up to 40 revisits of points of interest per day.
Satellogic recently announced a launch agreement with SpaceX, reserving launch capacity for its next 68 satellites.
“We are focused on developing our partnerships with the public sector throughout APAC, in particular Australia, with its strong security alliances across the Indo-Pacific region,” said Matt Tirman, EVP & GM Global Public Sector at Satellogic.
“Today’s announcement is an important step forward in this area and we expect that our operations will accelerate the new space industry across APAC and further support our key Oceanic, European, and North American partners.”
