Press Release From: LeoLabs Inc.
Posted: Monday, February 27, 2017

LeoLabs, Inc., the leading commercial provider of data to track debris and prevent collisions in low Earth orbit (LEO), today announced completion of the next addition to its network of phased-array radars. The Midland Space Radar (MSR), located in Texas, is now operational and providing high resolution orbital data on LEO-based satellites and debris.

"This milestone demonstrates our aggressive execution model for building a global network of radar sites to map objects in LEO," said Dan Ceperley, CEO of LeoLabs. "In combination with data already provided from our Alaska site, the MSR brings our coverage of known LEO objects up to 95%, and improves our ability to provide high resolution data on a commercial service platform."
