Designed and manufactured by Satellogic engineers, Sophie and Marie will be integrated into a constellation of a dozen devices operating from a low orbit.

After the launch of Sophie and Marie , which the Satellogic company programmed for next Tuesday, 14 January, the Argentine company specialized in the marketing of solutions and satellite images will take a new step towards the creation of its own satellite network. If the plans are fulfilled, this "satellite constellation" will be integrated, by the end of 2021, by ninety microsatellites that - working as a team - will be able to map the entire earth's surface in less than a week.
