  • Pixxel

    Pixxel says its platform unlocks a range of novel environment and sustainability use cases, offering advanced tools for agriculture, oil and gas, mining, and environmental agencies to analyse geospatial composites of the earth’s surface in real-time through a simple API (application programming interface). This level of precise detail will provide deep insights for the government to control and manage risk activities across several industries. The startup also successfully retrieved its first hyper spectral satellite images recently from a camera that was launched last year with partners NanoAvionics and Dragonfly Aerospace. In April 2022, it launched its first fully-fledged commercial satellite Shakuntala (Technology Demonstrator-2) with the SpaceX Falcon-9 rocket. Shakuntala hosts one of the highest resolution hyperspectral commercial cameras ever flown to space, bringing it one step closer to building a 24x7 health monitor for the planet.
