The PlanetScope Advantage
Planet launched their first Dove microsatellites in 2015 with multiple launches in subsequent years. As of 2019, over 150 PlanetScope microsats were orbiting the planet, providing daily imagery of most Earth’s landmass at 3-meter resolution with 4 multispectral bands (i.e. blue, green, red and near-infrared [NIR]). Newly launched SuperDoves feature 3-m imagery with 5 multispectral bands, adding in valuable red edge data.
Planet continues to improve their Doves with multiple launches each year – a major differentiator to macrosatellites like WorldView-3 which only improve every 5 to 10 years with each new launch. For instance, Doves commissioned in late 2018 and beyond use new high-performance butcher-block filters which combine consecutive frames to create color and NIR composite images. And SuperDoves launched since 2019 have a new fifth spectral band, i.e. red edge.
Below is the least expensive, color PlanetScope data offered. Prices increase for new collections, monitoring and data processing. Note that academic and volume discounts are available.
