Loft is unlocking the power of space for data collection with a deep understanding of how to develop, manage, launch, and operate the satellites that make up their infrastructure. This gives seamless access to on-orbit satellites that gather the hyperspectral data customers need.
Wyvern was founded because the company firmly believes in the power of hyperspectral data with its ability to reveal the hidden reality of Earth and drive positive change. When specific geochemical signatures can be identified, the ability to address planetary-scale problems is unlocked as well as a range of opportunities across industries. From mining and forestry to energy and climate change, hyperspectral data provides unparalleled visibility. That’s why the highest resolution hyperspectral imagery commercially available is offered from LEO.
Wyvem’s mission is set to fly on Loft’s 2Gen satellite platform, which consists of the Longbow bus, derived from the flight-proven OneWeb bus, and the Hub, a modular payload interface that allows for the turnkey accommodation of any customer mission. Wyvern will operate the mission using Cockpit, Loft’s mission operations software. With the ability to support 20-100x the downlink volume as a traditional cubesat, the expanded imaging capacity of Loft’s platform enables Wyvern to serve the growing demand for high-quality data.
