Meet Holmes Imager, the next-generation telescopic space camera


We are excited to announce the launch of our next-generation space hardware the Holmes Imager.


Holmes Imager is a telescopic space camera developed by HEO Robotics and designed to be hosted as a secondary payload on spacecraft.


Today, HEO Robotics has access to 33 satellites in Low Earth Orbit but that is about to change. We have spent the last year building expertise in space optics design, manufacturing, assembly, and testing.

HEO Robotics has set the goal of gaining access to 2,500 cameras in orbit by 2027. This constellation will supercharge our HEO Inspect product and help us achieve ubiquitous coverage of the earth-moon system. Four cameras will be launched into orbit by the end of 2023 and to achieve this we have partnered with three different space companies.


HEO Robotics was founded under the belief that space should be transparent. Today, HEO Robotics is pioneering software and hardware technologies to make this possible, with the ultimate mission to image anything within the Solar System on demand.


HEO Robotics is based in Sydney, Australia with an office in London, UK. We raised seed capital in July 2021 and have invested our resources to hire an interdisciplinary team with a passion for relentless experimentation necessary to tackle the complex problems in space and create new products for the benefit of all humanity.

In August this year, HEO Robotics held its first user conference, T-Minus where we unveiled our proprietary platform HEO Inspect – a first of its kind, satellite inspection software.


Data and insights provided by HEO Inspect will have a tremendous impact on space situational awareness (SSA). The applications range from intelligence, identification, verification, serviceability to debris removal.


We are excited about the next phase of our company’s journey and growth trajectory as a hardware enabled software company.


If you represent a satellite operator or owner and are interested in partnering with HEO Robotics, please reach out to us.


Come meet our team at the IAC 2022 from 18 to 22 September in Paris, France. You will find us at the Australian Space Agency booth located in the exhibition hall at J12.


Visit us at AMOS from 27 to 30 September in Maui, Hawaii.
