SCOUT is developing small, inexpensive satellites to perform in-space inspections of large, expensive satellites. 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.
