Pixxel, which calls itself “the new leader in advanced Earth imaging technology,” has announced the completion of an initial round of funding that raised $ 7.3 million. Omnivore VC, Techstars and other companies were the new investors. who have joined Lightspeed Ventures, Blume, growX and other investors who have believed in Pixxel’s future.

In addition, Pixxel, founded in 2019, has come out of stealth today and publicly announced its goal of creating the world’s highest resolution hyperspectral satellite constellation.

“We’re thrilled to finally share what we’re building at Pixxel. The new funding allows us to create a planetary health monitor using state-of-the-art hyperspectral small satellites. It will enable us to achieve some of the most complete images of its kind, ”said Awais Ahmed, co-founder and CEO of Pixxel. “These hyperspectral satellites will enable society to tackle many of humankind’s most pressing problems, and we believe they will become the holy grail of remote sensing, providing the best combination of spatial, temporal and spectral resolution available today, and enabling people to see the Earth like never before.” …

Pixxel satellites for hyperspectral imaging of the Earth can transmit 50 times more information than conventional multispectral satellites in widespread use today. They work with a large number of spectral bands (300, including visible and infrared), collecting accurate chemical signatures and “offering more accurate solutions to previously unsolved problems” in industries such as agriculture, energy and environmental protection. Once deployed, the Pixxel constellation is said to provide 24/7 global coverage at a higher resolution and at a lower cost than any existing satellite competitors.

The first Pixxel hyperspectral satellite will be launched in the next few months.

The week began for the main cryptocurrencies of the world with a rise in price and the establishment of new price highs, and ends with a fall, and quite noticeable. Over the course of a day, Bitcoin loses about 4.5% of its value, and as a result, for 1 BTC now they give not $ 66,000, but about $ 60,500.

After Bitcoin began to fall, Ethereum was still holding, but its rate had already gone down too, dropping below the psychological mark of $ 4,000. Analysts believe that such a fall in cryptocurrencies is due to their sell-off on the part of investors – they are fixing profits against the backdrop of a strong growth in value that has been observed since the end of September. This means that after the current correction, Bitcoin may rush to new heights, but whether altcoins will follow it is a big question.
