A few days ago, a private American space company released images taken from its most potent Spy Satellite Can See Inside The Buildings With Radar Waves.
In August this year, an American space company called Capella Space sent its second radar satellite, Capella 2, into space, which has been operating at full capacity since last week.
What is unique about these radar images is that their resolution is 0.5 meters; That is, one dot (pixel) of each such image represents a space 50 cm long and 50 cm wide on the ground. This is a breakthrough that has never been achieved on commercial satellites before.
It is expected that the resolution of radar satellite images will be further enhanced in the future by further improving this technology.
It should be noted that the “Capilla 2” satellite uses the same “Synthetic Aperture Radar” (SAR) technology that was invented 46 years ago today. However, in the new radar satellite, it has been made much more sensitive, detailed and improved.
Payam Banazadeh, the founder of Capilla Space, said that currently two radar satellites of “Capilla 2” had been launched into space which can monitor 75% of the surface of the Earth. Next year, in 2021, when the network is completed by launching six more satellites into space, radar waves will be able to see anywhere on Earth.
When conventional light-observational satellites and radar images from our satellites come together, the imagery of Earth from space will be more potent than ever before,” said Payam Bin. Azada said.
Apparently, this is a private and commercial project, but its military aspects are also of special importance: the “Capilla Satellite System” can also be seen through thick concrete walls.
The Pentagon will be able to use the same satellites to see what’s inside military and intelligence installations in different countries. In this way, a new era will begin in the field of “space espionage” when “things hidden in seven curtains” will also come to the notice of the United States.
