Environmental Monitoring

More lives are lost to severe weather every year than in any combat operations.

Supporting national efforts to protect lives and property are a critical capability for a company dedicated to national defense. Defending lives and property is an integral part of environmental intelligence. Centauri employees support every facet of dynamic environmental satellite acquisitions from requirements generation and data analytics to launch management, mission operations and next generation program development.
