We are building the first in-space observation service for high-value space infrastructure and assets.
- Space Situational Awareness
- In-Orbit Inspection
- Early stage
- First launch
We enable operations where spacecraft detect, identify, and refine models for observed objects to gather deeper insight and enable autonomous operations. Our software will help **S**pace**C**raft **O**bserve and **U**nderstand **T**hings around them **(SCOUT)**. 8CT’s observation, cataloging, and comprehension capabilities will allow for several data products designed for specific customer uses. **SCOUT-Sat **and **Sentry-Sat** will enable on-demand, on-site inspections for space assets. SCOUT-Sats are small satellites built for rendezvous & proximity ops (RPO) and inspections. Our SCOUT-Sat constellation will enable sustainable access to anything in GEO within 6 hours. Sentry-Sats will serve as “24-hour security cameras” for real-time surveillance and situational awareness. Our inspection services will be available in 2022, and regulatory approvals are in progress.
