StriX-3 reaches its target orbit

Apr 2024 | No Comment

Synspective announced that StriX-3, its fourth SAR satellite, has successfully reached its target orbit and spread its wings.

StriX-3 was successfully deployed into a Sun-Synchronous Orbit (SSO) at an altitude of 561 km by Rocket Lab’s Electron rocket from the Rocket Lab Launch Complex 1 on New Zealand’s Mahia Peninsula.

StriX-3 is not a newly developed and designed satellite but was manufactured based on the same conceptual design as StriX-1. To successfully build our desired satellite constellation, parallel production, or the capability to concurrently produce several satellites, is necessary.

StriX-3 is an important step toward establishing this production system while facilitating continuous enhancement, making the assembly of the constellation considerably more efficient.

Over the coming months, Synspective will verify observation and data acquisition.
