Satellogic has signed a letter of intent (LOI) with Agencia Espacial Mexicana (AEM) to develop a fully featured and operational Constellation-as-a-Service program to monitor approximately 2 million square kilometres of Mexico.
The LOI provides a framework for the development of the program, leveraging Satellogic satellites to deliver high-resolution multispectral (70cm GSD) imagery.
The deal will help to support Mexico’s innovation and participation in the New Space economy with multipurpose, country-wide monitoring up to three times a year, enhancing Mexico’s EO competence via commercial capabilities.
The LOI also includes details for a pilot project utilising archive imagery.
“Satellogic’s Constellation-as-a-Service program will introduce a new level of Earth observation autonomy for the government of Mexico to service many programs across defence, agriculture, maritime security and census plus geography, enriching data resources for the respective agencies managing them,” said Dr Adán Salazar Garibay, General Coordinator of Scientific Research and Space Technological Development at AEM.
