It is only the first step

— Project

The Alya-1 System is an advanced low-orbit, high-frequency satellite network combining optical remote sensing with synthetic aperture radar technology. This active-passive hybrid constellation offers all-weather, near-real-time monitoring. Its expertise lies in regional monitoring in real-time, supporting refined management of commodities (agriculture, mining, oil and gas) and ecological management for the creation of smart cities and rural regions of the future.


In just three years, our ambitious initiative will launch a total of 216 satellites into space, Alya 1 (108 satellites) and Alya 2 (108 satellites), distributed across 24 distinct orbits, each accommodating nine satellites. The inaugural deployment of these cutting-edge satellites is scheduled for 2024.2, marking the beginning of our mission to renew and upgrade the fleet every two years to stay at the forefront of technology. To ensure optimal performance, our commitment extends to keeping the sensors of these satellites constantly calibrated, guaranteeing precision and reliability throughout their operational lifespan.
