Digilogic Systems signs MoU with SATIM Inc.  for co-Development of Synthetic Aperture Radar–Environment Simulator


As part of the agreement, SATIM has agreed to providing the SAR module libraries to DSPL.  DSPL will integrate, Design, and develop SAR Environment Simulator (SARES) in India. Developed using this library, Synthetic Aperture RADAR – Environment Simulator is a very high-end simulator which will enable the scientists to simulate various SAR characteristic data in Radio Frequency.   

“SARES has been developed keeping in mind the extreme challenges faced by the research organizations to evaluate a SAR payload before final trials. In present scenario, the scientists and developers have no other option but to fly the payload in an aircraft and process the retrieved data. This ideally is a very expensive process. Our system will enable our clients to do multiple simulations in the ground itself and evaluate the SAR payload rather than waiting for flight trials. This saves a lot of time and money for the customer which is very critical during the R&D process” said Shashank Varma – CEO of Digilogic Systems.

“I am thrilled to sign the MoU with Digilogic Systems and enter into partnership that will definitely be fruitful to both companies. The application of Synthetic Aperture Radar imagery simulation capabilities provided by SATIM in testing SAR payloads can make the radar sensor development cycle much shorter than currently. It may also provide the ability to test the sensors under different scenarios, conditions and environments. SARES system is created based on experience and unique products of both Digilogic Systems and SATIM. I am looking forward to bring it to the market together with our Partner. “- CEO of SATIM.

DSPL and SATIM look to have SAR-ES developed and integrated in India at the Hyderabad head quatres as a part of Make in Inda initiative by the Government of India. Aiming to have more than 65% development as a part of indigenous content will enable DSPL to provide strong local support for the Indian customers.

About Satim:

SATIM has expertise in world-class and unique AI-based software solution for object detection, classification and identification using Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) satellite imagery.

SATIM, established in 2012, partnered with the European Space Agency and has created world-leading automatic object detection and classification software. It has the capability to provide near real-time, accurate classification of vessels and objects on the open sea, in port, and on land. Their team includes data scientists, remote sensing experts, AI and SAR specialists and ex-military personnel with a wealth of knowledge and experience. Also, they use simulated SAR data to train AI models.



As part of the agreement, SATIM has agreed to providing the SAR module libraries to DSPL. DSPL will integrate, Design, and develop SAR Environment Simulator (SARES) in India.

SATIM has detected unusual changes in the TU-95 and TU-160 bomber’s SAR signatures using Umbra SAR imagery obtained from the Engels-2 military base in Russia. The characteristics of the signal reflections captured do not match the known geometry and material composition of the aircraft. This may indicate a new camouflage method adopted to protect these valuable aircraft from drone attacks.

Satim has secured $2 Million in their latest investor round to advance its AI-based, cutting-edge software, renowned globally for its automatic object detection, identification and classification capabilities anytime, anywhere using satellite SAR (synthetic aperture radar) imagery.
