Bengaluru-based space-tech startup GalaxEye has achieved a significant milestone, successfully conducting trials of its Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) technology on a High Altitude Pseudo-Satellite (HAPS) platform. This accomplishment positions GalaxEye as a frontrunner in the global race to integrate SAR payloads with HAPS platforms.

HAPS platforms are essentially long-endurance drones that operate in the stratosphere, offering extended aerial coverage compared to traditional aircraft. This makes them ideal for various applications, including surveillance, disaster response, and communication relay.

SAR technology plays a crucial role in Earth observation. It uses radar pulses to generate high-resolution images, functioning effectively irrespective of weather conditions or sunlight availability. Integrating SAR with HAPS unlocks a new level of capability.

By successfully conducting these trials, GalaxEye has established itself as one of the first companies globally to test a SAR payload specifically designed for HAPS platforms. This achievement signifies a significant leap forward in utilizing HAPS for various applications that require high-quality, all-weather imaging.
