Orbit Logic of Greenbelt, Md., has created SpyMeSat, an ios app that provides notifications when spy satellites and unclassified imaging satellites are zooming above your head and may be taking your picture. A dynamic map shows orbit tracks and the location of remote sensing satellites with upcoming passes over a user’s specified location.
Alex Herz, president of Orbit Logic, said that SpyMeSat is the firm’s first app designed for everyday folks, and a product that extends the company’s customer base beyond the aerospace, defense and government intelligence communities.
“I actually got the idea for the app from talking to friends outside the aerospace industry who were always very interested in space and satellites and imaging from space. This app answers those questions in a fun and interactive way,” Herz told SPACE.com.
