Capella Space imagery is acquired by seven very high and high resolution radar satellites on an intraday basis anywhere on the globe. The datasets are available starting with 2020. The collection provides single-look products (SLC and SICD) and multi-look products (GEC and GEO).
This collection provides catalog and tasking data. See more on the marketplace.
This is a restricted collection:
- To use the catalog collection, request access.
- To use the tasking collection, request access.
The geographic coverage is global. There are regional restrictions that limit the coverage of the catalog collection.

Data product specifications
All three acquisiton modes can provide SLC, GEC, and GEO products.
SLC, GEC, and GEO products are delivered as a three-file bundle consisting of the following:
- Cloud Optimized GeoTIFF
- STAC JSON metadata
- Extended JSON metadata
The Spotlight (Spot) and Stripmap (Strip) acqusition modes can also deliver single look complex data in a Sensor Independent Complex Data (SICD) format. This will be a NITF file which contains both the SAR imagery and its metadata.
