Our Fleet of SpaceDrones

Affectionately called a SpaceDrone - the BlackStar represents a next generation high performance multi role spacecraft designed around a reusable common core spaceplane. This allows for a near infinite number of customer defined mission types while overcoming the disadvantages of legacy design.

 

Some of the key mission functions that the BlackStar Satellite can perform include:

 

  • Earth observation: The BlackStar Satellite can be equipped with a variety of sensors and cameras to observe the Earth from space, enabling applications such as environmental monitoring, weather forecasting, and disaster response.

  • Communications: The BlackStar Satellite can support a wide range of communication applications, from providing internet connectivity to remote areas to enabling secure and reliable military communications.

  • Defense: The BlackStar Satellite's advanced technology and reconfigurability make it well-suited for a variety of defense applications, including intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR), as well as support for military operations.

  • Science and research: The BlackStar Satellite can support a variety of scientific and research applications, such as studying the Earth's climate and atmosphere, mapping the ocean floor, or investigating celestial bodies.

  • Commercial services: The BlackStar Satellite can support a variety of commercial services, such as remote sensing for agriculture, forestry, and mining, or providing imagery for mapping and navigation applications.
