We make satellites to image everywhere on Earth, every 15 minutes

Alba Orbital is building the world's largest earth observation constellation, imaging everywhere on earth, every 15 minutes. We can see events within minutes such as wildfires in real time and have signed >$104m of LOIs, with both government and commercial customers paying pre-orders for imagery. To date we have launched 23 satellites into orbit (more than any other seed stage company in history), with another 2 launching in Q4 2022. We have launched a number of technology demonstration imaging satellites called Unicorns, which are the world's most advanced satellite under 1kg ever flown in orbit.
