Empowering the new
As commercial space ventures and newly-formed space agencies from every corner of the globe compete for their place in the emerging LEO economy, LeoLabs is here to address a new generation of risks and opportunities to preserve LEO for future generations.
LeoLabs is led by a team of experts with deep experience in the space and technology industries. Our executive team has flown 3 missions to LEO, built 5 radars, built 10 satellite payloads, run two scientific observatories, launched a new programming language, and served on console for multiple launches.
LeoLabs was founded in 2016 as a venture-funded spinout of Silicon Valley research pioneer, SRI International, by scientists and space industry veterans committed to securing Low Earth Orbit (LEO). LeoLabs is built on 30+ years of R&D in radar systems and satellite tracking algorithms. The team is rapidly expanding its global radar network and data services platform to help satellite operators deploy their services safely and to empower governmental space agencies with detailed visibility into the LEO ecosystem.
