Blue Canyon Technologies won its largest constellation order to date, a contract with weather technology company Tomorrow.io.
Spire Global said July 20 it plans to improve its weather forecast services by fitting future smallsats in its fleet with microwave sounders from RAL Space, the British government’s national laboratory.
Adding microwave sounders to its constellation will not push back the timeline for startup Tomorrow.io to begin gathering weather data via satellite.
A week after calling off a SPAC merger intended to raise $420 million for a constellation of commercial weather radar satellites, Tomorrow.io said March 16 its two pathfinder spacecraft passed their critical design review.
Satellite communications equipment maker SatixFy said March 8 it has agreed to go public by merging with a special purpose acquisition company, shrugging off market uncertainty that helped dash weather startup Tomorrow.io’s SPAC plans the day before.
Tomorrow.io said Dec. 7 it stands to raise up to $420 million for its planned network of weather satellites by merging with Pine Technology Acquisition Corp., the latest special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) to invest in the space industry.
Tomorrow.io won a $19.3 million contract from the U.S. Air Force to support deployment of a constellation of approximately 32 radar-equipped weather satellites.
Meteorological intelligence startup Tomorrow.io says it picked California-based Astro Digital to build the first two of potentially dozens of small satellites equipped with storm-tracking radars to improve weather forecasts.
