SEE IT ALL. KNOW IT ALL.
THE WORLD'S LEADING
SUPER HIGH-RES, DUAL-BAND
SYNTHETIC APERTURE RADAR
Alpha is building the world's premier space-based, super high-res, Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) satellite technology.
Combined with our predictive analytics platform, Alpha's SAR will deliver unprecedented global insights to the security, agriculture, insurance, infrastructure, environment, and supply chain industries.
This proprietary AI-based self-cueing mode of satellite surveillance offers next-gen capabilities, datasets, and related value-added products—providing Alpha’s customers with unparalleled and actionable information.
Alpha's SAR-XL technology offers in-orbit processing that detects ground objects immediately. It forms an image beam on the detected object and then acquires an ultra-high-res image—all in realtime.
Imagery data is then immediately processed on-board the spacecraft using AI-based classification algorithms to enable near-zero latency surveillance and object classification.
THROUGH THE CLOUDS
Nearly 70% of the globe is covered by cloud at any given time, while more than 30% of Earth's surface is covered by trees. When optical imagery isn't enough — high-quality SAR data helps industries derive insights from below cloud and tree cover.

NO MATTER THE CONDITIONS.
SAR-XL is an entirely new generation of spaceborne SAR technology that uses two simultaneous frequencies—X and L bands. It's fully “software defined” with digital beamforming using a large phased array antenna.
