The Gr@vity One Satellite model takes your brand to space. Your customized marketing component is positioned in view of the Gr@vity One imager for photos, videos, and live streaming/broadcasting. Coupled with tracking capability, the options and capabilities for your marketing activation are endless.
See a few of the many novel capabilities and user engagement opportunities with the Gr@vity One Satellite.
The baseline imager is Gr@vity's standard camara model. The standard model provides a detailed Field Of View of large land masses while picking up a broad image of Earth. If you have different image requirements, Gr@vity will work with you to fit your need.
The orbital image provides an example of the camera in a Low-Earth-Orbit at 550km. The Far Horizontal Field Of View (green line) picks up 3960km. The Near Horizontal Field Of View (blue line) picks up 971 km. The Vertical Field Of View (purple line) picks up 2460km.
The Ground Sample Distance (GSD) describes the distance between the center of one pixel to the next pixel of the ground. The Far Horizontal GSD picks up 1289.1m per pixel. The Near Horizontal GSD picks up 237.1m per pixel. The Vertical GSD is averaged from bottom to top and picks up 800.7 m per pixel.
The following figure illustrates how the baseline imager records photos and videos from orbit. The dotted light-blue line represents the satellite's orbital path. The two blue lines with the red line underneath represent the entire camera's field of view from orbit; how far and how much of Earth appears on screen. The green line represents the center of the image; what will be in the center of the screen.
There are many different types of orbits. We recommend a Polar Orbit for photo and video coverage around all of Earth to best suit the first space marketing campaign. For an event flyover such as for the World Cup, a burn is calculated to repositions your spacecraft's orbital trajectory into a Sun-synchronous orbit. This places your spacecraft over the same position every day at the same time. Once the event is finished, another burn takes place to put your spacecraft back into a polar orbit.
A polar orbit trajectory is exactly how it sounds, the satellite orbits from pole to pole; it follows a longitude pathway.
It takes 90 minutes for the satellite to complete one orbit around the Earth.
As the Earth rotates following a latitude path, the satellite maintains its trajectory.
Each time the satellite completes an orbit, the satellite's camera view will be over a different part of Earth due to Earth's rotation. It takes a 7-10 days for your satellite to cover all of Earth with your branded media content.
A Sun-Synchronous Orbit is exactly how it sounds. At an orbital inclination of 98°, the orbit tracks the sun.
It takes about 96 minutes for the satellite to complete one orbit around the Earth
As the Earth rotates following a latitude path, the satellite maintains its longitude sun tracking trajectory.
The Camera will fly over the same part of Earth at the same local time everyday. This allows for event flyovers.
Gr@vity customizes your marketing component how you want. Whether its a soccer ball, beverage can, sign, or anything else, we can put it in space for you.
But you may be wondering, "How can a soccer ball, or a beverage can withstand the volatile nature of space?" Good question. We don't just attach a consumer product to the end of our satellite. We shape your marketing component with solid aluminium which is colored and made corrosion resistant through a process called anodic coating.
Anodic coating happens when the formed aluminum is submerged in an acid electrolyte at 50°C to form a dense coating. A direct current is applied and an anodic layer is formed. Within this layer are pores which are then filled with metallic salts or other chemical compounds for coloring. Once deposited, the pores are sealed through a hydrolyzing process. The pores are now sealed and the coating is colored, hard, smooth, transparent, homogeneous, and corrosion resistant.
