MyRadar Signs Launch Agreement with Exolaunch for Deployment of HORIS Pathfinder Satellites
ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 12, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MyRadar, a leader in satellite technology and weather data services, today announced a launch agreement with Exolaunch for the deployment of its first two HORIS pathfinder satellites. The satellites, HORIS-1 and HORIS-2, are set to launch on upcoming SpaceX rideshare missions.
This agreement signifies an important development in MyRadar's satellite-based capabilities. The HORIS pathfinder satellites represent the initial phase in deploying a comprehensive constellation of roughly 150 satellites. These satellites are integral to MyRadar's strategy to enhance global weather forecasting and environmental monitoring and alerting capabilities.
HORIS-1 is scheduled to launch to Low Earth Orbit on the SpaceX Transporter-12 mission. This launch is pivotal in establishing the technological and operational groundwork for the subsequent HORIS constellation. Following this step, HORIS-2 is slated for launch aboard the SpaceX Transporter-13 mission, continuing the pathfinder phase of the project.
The pimary objective of these initial satellites is to validate the technologies and operational protocols that will be utilized in the full HORIS constellation, as well as to gather AI training data for its observation and alerting models. The data collected from HORIS-1 and HORIS-2 will be instrumental in refining our approach to providing accurate, real-time environmental data.
“Partnering with Exolaunch represents our commitment to employing advanced space technologies for the modern era,” said CEO of MyRadar, Andy Green. “These collaborations are a testament to our dedication to innovation in the field of weather and earth observation technology.”
