Hera Systems is a San Jose, California startup company developing a constellation of micro satellites in Low Earth Orbit with imaging and communications capabilities. The company's imaging satellites are designed to provide high resolution geospatial imaging and analytics, as well as a number of other remote sensors.
Hera plans to launch a constellation of nine satellites to deliver high-resolution images and video, as well as intelligent analytics to government and commercial enterprises. In December 2015, Hera announced it had signed a licensing agreement with NASA Ames Research Center that will allow Hera to leverage NASA's technoogy to further develop its imaging system.
An interview with Hera CEO Bobby Machinski appeared in a February 2016 online issue of Earth Imaging Journal.
