Payam Banzadah Created a Satellite That Can Work Day and Night in All Kinds of Weather

CEO Payam Banazedah founded Capella Space in 2016. The adventure backed silicone satellite company is located in San Francisco, Calif. Capella Space utilizes Synthetic Aperture Radar or SAR. Banazedah’s satellites are superior to traditional satellites because they work better at night and during cloudy days than traditional satellites can. Prior to SARS, satellites could only show 25 percent of the Earth’s surface on most days. With more time to see what is going on in the world, SARS can show scientists the infrastructure of the Earth. Scientists can learn about infrastructure usage, food shortages, lost planes in the ocean can be rescued by a team that’ll recover passengers before a tragedy takes place, and satellites can give lots more information about the world. We might become better able to predict earthquakes, tidal waves, and more. 

College educated, after graduating, Payam Banazadeh became an intern at NASA. Banazadeh was an inspiration while educating STEM students. From 2012 to 2015, Payam Banazedah was constantly being promoted to different tasks, including Lead Project Engineer, Project Manager, and Strategic Business Consultant.

In 2017, Payam Banazedah was selected to be one of Forbes magazine’s 30 under 30. New York Times, Inc magazine, and Bloomberg named Payam Banazedah’s satellite company among the 25 top disruptive companies in the entire world.

Recently, Capella launched their first satellite. Sequoia is proof Capella provides global data all the time. Sequoia keeps scientists up-to-date on many areas in the world, that includes the Amazon RainForest, El Salvador’s Santa Ana volcano, and Palm Jumeirah that is located in Dubai.
