The company went public via a SPAC earlier this year and, like many space stocks, has been hit hard by the changing risk environment in the market. CNBC previously reported that Terran was among SPAC space stocks seeking capital, with several companies facing a cash crunch.

The company said in Monday’s announcement that it will “no longer pursue” building its own constellation of satellites and instead plans to use its existing PredaSAR technology to deliver a specialized Earth imaging product. .

Terran is expected to release its third quarter results on November 9.
