The BlackSky Advantage
BlackSky, based in Seattle, Washington, launched its first commercial smallsat in the Global series on November 29, 2018 followed by five more satellites through 2020. At 44 kilograms (kg), the satellites are small, fast to manufacture, and use an innovative water-based propulsion system. The first Global satellites were placed into orbit at 450 to 580 kilometers (km), giving them a three-year lifespan and about 1-meter resolution. As their orbits lower, they’ll increase in resolution. Subsequent launches of Global smallsats were placed at a lower altitude to start, allowing them to collect 85-centimer (cm) resolution.
By the end of 2021, BlackSky plans to launch ten more Global satellites, more than doubling their current capacity. Their constellation offers multiple collections per day at high resolution, making it an ideal solution for global monitoring in time-sensitive situations.
Below is the least expensive BlackSky Global data offered. Prices increase for new collections and data processing. Note that volume discounts are available.
