Welcome to Dragonfly Aerospace. This is the latest chapter in a proud history of South African space engineering and space missions. Our team has a strong experience and heritage dating back to the first earth observation satellite missions starting in the 1980’s through to our most recent satellite launch in 2018 and imager launch in 2020. Members of our team have worked on every microsatellite space mission since South Africa entered the space race.
We create imager products that can be used in a modern CubeSat or microsatellite platforms to create compact high performance satellite solutions.
We manufacture satellite buses to deliver electro-optical and SAR payloads. Which can provide high-quality wide-spectrum Earth observation for a wide range of scientific, civil and commercial needs.
The dragonfly has excellent vision, agility and stability, the same as our high-resolution imaging satellites. The eyes of the dragonfly are one of the best in the animal kingdom. Some have over 30 colour receptors like our hyperspectral imagers.
A compound eye is good analogy for our large constellations of imaging satellites with numerous objectives imaging simultaneously to create a complete picture. A dragonfly’s eyes provide a 360-degree field of vision just as our satellite constellations provide a 360-degree view of the Earth.
Applications of Remote Sensing In Agriculture Agriculture provides raw materials, fuel, fibers, and food (of course!) to humanity. This role needs to be fulfilled within climate change and environmental sustainability, combined with the expanding population while maintaining agricultural activities’ viability to sustain livelihoods. The application of remote sensing in agriculture can help the evolution of […]
What are Remote Sensing Satellites, and What Are They Used For? From a more general perspective, remote sensing satellites laid the foundation for the science of acquiring and analyzing information about phenomena or objects from a certain distance. As humans, we depend on visual perspective for information about our surroundings. However, our eyes are limited […]
Different Applications of a LEO Satellite Satellites need to be adequately placed in the corresponding orbit once it leaves for space. This way, it will revolve in a particular direction and serve its commercial, military, or scientific purposes. The orbits assigned to such machines that are closest to the Earth are known as Earth Orbits. […]
Support Ukraine in the fight against the russian invaders and buy NFT tokens with the images of artistic space sculptures. We hope to raise $500 000 to support our defenders! All the funds raised will be transferred to the official cryptocurrency accounts provided by the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine.
and help Ukraine to
defend its independence
