"Acadia" is the name of the newest generation of Capella Space satellites, which provide better communications connectivity and enhanced imaging capabilities. Better Earth observation and more precise decision-making are made possible by these satellites, which are lighter and smaller than earlier versions while still having improved resolution and detection capabilities. Synthetic aperture radar (SAR) technology is a characteristic of Capella Space's newest generation of satellites that enables them to take pictures of the Earth day or night and in any weather. These satellites can also provide data and photos more quickly and effectively thanks to improved communication capabilities.
