Payam Banazadeh, founder and CEO of Capella Space, said that in today’s world, where businesses conduct business via email and text messages within seconds, waiting eight hours to receive satellite images seems outdated and impractical. Sputnik, the initial artificial satellite, was launched on October 4, 1957.
Since then, satellites have been inseparable from modern life, providing location tracking, imaging, communication, and other functions. However, despite the many satellite advances, much potential is still not tapped, according to Payam Banazadeh, creator and CEO of Capella Space. Through innovative satellite design and use methods, entrepreneurs are helping usher in a new era of data-led space trade.
Then, he studied at Stanford University and obtained an MBA in business and management. The difference is that in addition to the behavioral MBA, the department focuses on the behavioral aspect and focuses on the technical aspects of organizational management.
In addition to formal education, Payam Banazadeh also has extensive experience in research and applied sciences in the aerospace industry. It can be judged by the multiple positions he held in NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Banazadeh’s work in the organization commenced with an internship series at the university period. Eventually, he was promoted to the full-time position of chief system engineer for the project.
In addition to working with NASA, Payam Banazadeh also conducted research in the Applied Research Laboratory at the Texas University (Austin) and is a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Commercial Remote Sensing Advisory Committee member. That is just realizing that you might be pushed, cancelled or waited for hours even several days until your order is completed.
In a world where business is completed in seconds through text messages and emails, waiting for eight hours to get satellite images seems impractical and out of date, noted Payam Banazadeh. In addition, most satellites cannot be measured in cloudy or dark weather.
