Albedo is building a constellation of satellites that will capture both visible and thermal imagery simultaneously, at a resolution 9x higher than the best available today. This novel dataset will enable commercial applications that, until now, have been limited due to the lack of affordability, timeliness, and spatial resolution required for the majority of imagery applications. Our low cost approach will commoditize ultra high resolution imagery, enabling this data source to become as core to society as GPS.
Previous to being CEO of Albedo, Topher was a systems engineer at Lockheed Martin working on top secret remote sensing satellites. Topher led teams involved in the optical design and imaging architecture across multiple $B+ government programs. He holds a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from UT Austin and an M.S. in Electrical Engineering from Johns Hopkins.
CTO at Albedo. Previous to Albedo, AJ was a System Architect at Lockheed Martin, developing satellite constellations, satellite designs from concept to launch and in-obit ops, and iterated on various in-depth performance analysis. He managed teams, contracts, and schedules for multiple programs. AJ worked with high performing small sats and exquisite large satellites for the government. He holds a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Colorado School of Mines and M.S. in Mechatronics from DU.

Captures the highest resolution satellite imagery
Albedo builds a constellation of satellites that will provide the highest resolution imagery commercially available from space. Our satellite’s imaging improves by 9x what is available to the commercial market and opens up essential new applications in the rapidly expanding field of space imaging. Examples include global pipeline inspection, mapping propagation networks for 5G, vegetation management for electrical utility companies, and recognizing features on a plane or missile.
