Scepter Inc., a Silicon Valley startup, unveiled plans 22 March to launch a constellation of satellites to provide global atmospheric monitoring services for government and commercial customers.

Scepter, which has been in stealth mode for approximately two years, is beginning to reveal plans and solicit investment after receiving a U.S. government patent in mid-March to use space-based sensors to obtain detailed information on various gases in vertical columns of air, combine the information with other data sources, analyze it and present it to customers in visual formats.
