Accompanying technological advances, small satellites are beginning to evolve into infrastructure that is essential to society. As a pioneer in the small satellite business, Axelspace provides clients in a variety of industries with services that utilize the unique functions and data that satellites possess.
AxelGlobe is for those wanting to utilize satellite data for business. Space data are increasingly being applied to new fields, including not only agriculture and disaster preparedness but the environment, news reporting and other sectors as well. AxelLiner is for those wanting to achieve unique ideas in space. It provides total support for everything from obtaining permits and licenses to operating satellites post-launch.
AxelGlobe is Earth-observation infrastructure that employs small satellites to provide timely information on events that are currently taking place in the world. It is beginning to be utilized in business across all industries, including the environment, disaster preparedness, agriculture and news reporting.
Unlike any other way, satellite imagery is characterized by the ability to capture very large areas at the same seconds. In addition, by using images captured not only once but multiple times, it is possible to remove clouds and make cloud-free images in a very wide area, such as all over Japan.
AXELGLOBE - 01
Sometimes you can't get any insight by looking at satellite images. By using invisible wavelengths of light, it is possible to analyze things that are difficult for the human eye to understand, such as the health of plants, the quality of rice, and the presence of pest damage. We will also consider expanding to various sensors according to customer requests.
AXELGLOBE - 02
AxelGlobe is basically a service that monitors a certain place for a certain period of time, but depending on the needs of the customer, we can use archive data captured in the past, take pictures at request time including emergency pictures in case of an emergency and provide solution services with satellite imagery analysis. We have a variety of menus.

The era to save the earth by satellite imagery.
Due to climate change caused by global warming, there are concerns about the intensification and frequent occurrence of disasters that have never been experienced in the past. We are in an era where we have to do whatever we can to save the earth, save people, and save ourselves. However, the earth is large and it is difficult to see all the places you want to see with limited resources. However, satellite imagery allows you to check the latest status anytime, anywhere from a distance. Not only that, but by combining the accumulated past data, it is possible to realize a service that automatically notifies you when there is an abnormality or change.
Save the sea
It is very difficult to monitor the ocean, which occupies two-thirds of the earth, on a daily basis, but satellite images allow you to see a wide area at once. Not only can you detect red tides, see the status of objects floating on the surface of the sea, and change the coastline, but you can also use it to protect ocean resources.
Save the forest
Vast forests scattered around the world, such as the Amazon rainforest, are under threat from illegal deforestation. By monitoring vast forests on a daily basis using satellite images, it is possible to quickly notice unreported illegal deforestation and save the forests.
Save the city
It is important to capture tiny daily changes in order to proceed with disaster prevention and mitigation efforts. By capturing and accumulating changes in the city using satellite images, it is possible not only to utilize it for urban development in ordinary times, but also to quickly check the damage situation in the event of a disaster.
Protect the agricultural field
With the growing the global population, it is the key to maintain and expanding the agricultural field by a small number of people to feed a large population. By analyzing satellite images, it is possible to quantify the growth status of plants, take measures according to the growth status and support an smart agriculture.
Satellite images are not just used for what is visible. By identifying the location of the waterside where mosquitoes are generated, satellite data can be used to prevent malaria and to prevent such infectious diseases.
Make your space missions come true easier, faster, and more affordably with AxelLiner including production of satellite bus and providing automated satellite operation system.
Conventionally, it has been challenging for customers outside the space industry to own satellites for their businesses. This is due to the challenges involved in fully understanding technologies, constraints, mechanisms, laws and systems related to satellite development and space utilization. With “AxelLiner” service, customers have access to a unified interface called the “AxelLiner Terminal,” providing a full package covering the long and complicated process involved in satellite projects. Through the AxelLiner Terminal, customers can perform various tasks such as, but not limited to, business studies, cost estimation, mission equipment development and operational data acquisition.
AXELLINER - 01
As satellite constellation use expands globally, the need for mass production of satellites is also rising. To meet these various expectations and requirements, AxelLiner is partnering up with businesses to establish the next-generation alliance in spacecraft manufacturing. AxelLiner supports customers’ fast-paced business development by applying mass production experience for non-space products and active digital transformation to ensure a high-quality and speedy satellite development.
AXELLINER - 02
AxelLiner takes environmentally-friendly approaches throughout the whole life cycle of satellite projects including, but not limited to, procurement of resources for spacecraft manufacturing, on-orbit operations, and post-mission deorbit disposal. All satellites provided by AxelLiner meet the “Axelspace Green Spacecraft Standards,” which is a stricter set of requirements for satellite utilization than the specifications defined internationally.
AXELLINER - 03
You can use AxelLiner services though the following 4 steps from feasibility check of customer’s mission to activate a satellite in orbit.
Step - 01
Confirm the possibility of mission realization
It is very complicated what constrain is exist to use a satellite. We check a feasibility of customer’s business firstly.
Step - 02
Make technical adjustments
After the feasibility check, start to fix a technical specification.
Step - 03
Manufacture and launch satellites
After fixing the specification, let’s start a design, manufacturing and launch!!
Step - 04
Start using your satellites!
Now the for useing your satellites!! We provide a highly automated operation system. It enable you minimum effort to use satellites.
Starting a satellite business will require procuring and retrieving licenses from authorities to own and use the satellites. This whole process, however, will be taken care of by AxelLiner on behalf of the customers.
Getting permission and license
Customers may need to apply for a license to own and operate satellites. We can support this procedure for Japanese domestic customers.
A license is necessary for operating your satellite on your expected radio frequency bands. We will support you in acquiring a license for the necessary frequency bands.
Import & export control
When launching a satellite with an overseas rocket, it is required to obtain an export license for the satellite and related mission equipment. We perform these procedures as part of the AxelLiner service.
Launch service procurement
Satellites are deployed into space via rocket. We will work to arrange launch services that match your desired orbit and schedule.
Ground station antennas are necessary for communicating with and operating satellites. We will arrange ground station service and provide an automated operation system.
You can mitigate space business risks with specialized insurance. We can procure both pre- and post-launch insurance for you.
