Why Does Spexigon Exist?
Every day, governments, businesses, and consumers rely on accurate aerial imagery to make informed decisions about physical assets all over the world. This imagery is captured by satellites, planes, or drones, and fuels a growing, multi-billion-dollar aerial imagery market.
Currently, the best commercially available satellite imagery is being collected at resolutions of just 30cm per pixel, which is too low of a resolution for many applications and use cases. Planes and helicopters also collect aerial imagery, but capturing and producing it is challenging at a whopping $2M price tag per aircraft + camera system.

Consumer drones, which cost as little as $500, are easy to fly, operate below the clouds, and can be flown frequently. They are also incredibly capable of capturing imagery at 10 times the resolution of satellites and planes.
That’s why we're building Spexigon – to enable organizations of all sizes to switch from legacy imagery sources to higher quality, more frequently updated drone-based data.
