This site is devoted to people, companies or institutions interested in purchasing SAOCOM Products. If you or your organization has an in-force agreement with CONAE, please contact atenció

The form is for those interested in purchasing SAOCOM Products to contact VENG and channel their needs.

VENG is a company authorized by CONAE to distribute, commercialize, use and/or render services with SAOCOM Mission satellite images.

As the SAOCOM Satellite is a RADAR, the information it produces is independent of the cloud coverage. By working in L Band, the satellite can obtain information by penetrating the vegetation cover and soil, capturing moisture information. Among other products it can generate are: Ship Maps, Soil Moisture Maps, Forecast System of Wheat Spike Fusarium.
The maximum resolution is 10mts, and the maximum revisit time is 16 days for ONE (1) Satellite and 8 days for TWO (2) Satellites, which can be reduced according to the requirements of the SAOCOM Product.

The maximum response time is 72 working hours. In case of urgency, please contact us by phone at +54 11 4340-5290, Monday to Friday from 10 am to 6 pm (Argentine local time).

Customer service hours are Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. (Argentine local time).

On this site you will find the current price list. For products that are not included in it, please contact us.

SAOCOM® (Argentine Satellite of Observation with Microwaves) is a constellation made of two Earth observation satellites owned by CONAE® (National Commission for Space Activities). Each satellite has an L-band synthetic aperture radar (SAR). SAOCOM-1A is the first satellite of the two, and was launched by SpaceX on October 2018. The satellite that will complete the constellation, SAOCOM 1B, has an estimated launch date at the beginning of 2020.
