The SpaceFab Omni-Material 3D Printer technology resulted from work done in designing our 3D printed imaging satellite. Now we will be bringing omni-material 3D printers that can print multiple metals, ceramics, and plastics to the industrial market.
We are currently designing our Viewpoint imaging satellite with many of the structural and optical components built using our omni-material 3D printer.
The Viewpoint satellite is multi-purpose, with quick and easy image tasking. It will address different markets, including Earth observation, Space Domain Awareness, and astronomy, utilizing all parts of its low Earth orbit.
The 50 centimeter diameter primary mirror, advanced optics, and low orbital height will provide a native resolution of 40 cm both for color and panchromatic Earth imaging.
