KIYOSU, Japan--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun 19, 2024--

Toyoda Gosei Co., Ltd. (TOKYO:7282) has invested 1 in Synspective Inc., a startup that develops and operates small SAR satellites 2 and provides solutions based on satellite data analysis.

This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20240619747933/en/

Synspective was established based on development results for technology to make smaller SAR satellites in the Japanese Cabinet Office’s innovative research and development program (ImPACT). 3 Its business covers from satellite development to operation and proposals for solutions to problems using the obtained observational data. SAR satellites use radio waves (microwaves) of the wavelength range that can penetrate clouds, and so ground data can be obtained even during inclement weather and at night. By linking a number of these satellites, semi-real time and broad area observations are achieved. The aim is to help in responding to disasters and maintaining the earth’s environment.

In the automotive industry that is undergoing great changes beyond the previous boundaries, Toyoda Gosei aims to achieve sustainable business growth by exploring new fields unbound by its existing operations. The space-related business being developed by Synspective is expected to grow in the coming years. Toyoda Gosei invested in the company to gather information with a view to exploring fields where its technology can be used.
