Array Labs, a California-based startup, has raised $5 million in seed funding to develop a cluster of low earth orbit (LEO) radar satellites that will work together to create 3D maps of the earth. Led by Seraphim Space and Agya Ventures, the investment round included participation from Republic Capital, Liquid 2 Ventures, Rebel Fund, Y Combinator co-founder Trevor Blackwell, and Keyhole co-founder Brian McClendon. The company plans to build a constellation of LEO radar satellites that will fly in formation and simultaneously image the same area to create 3D maps. The data collected will have applications in real estate, autonomous vehicles, and augmented reality, as well as in the energy, climate, and defense sectors. Array Labs has received over $100 million in soft commitments from companies interested in purchasing the data once it is available. The startup aims to demonstrate the technology within a year and a half and deploy an initial constellation in around three years.
