The SkySat Advantage
SkySat is a growing constellation of 21 (as of August 2020), sub-meter resolution micro-satellites. Launched in 2014, the satellites currently collect 65-centimeter (cm) panchromatic and 81-cm (m) 4-band multispectral (i.e. blue, green, red and near-infrared [NIR]) imagery – which is delivered as 50-cm 4-band pansharpened imagery through super-resolution processing. Originally built and launched by Terra Bella, the first seven SkySat satellites were acquired by Planet in 2017. Since then, Planet has added a number of microsats to the constellation.
SkySat’s impressive flock of microsats is ideal for monitoring high-value sights offering up to 12 revisits per day over a given location with the additional capability to capture 120 seconds of 50-cm panchromatic video. Micro-satellites are small with shorter life expectancies then their larger counterparts like WorldView-3, so expect to see more SkySats launched into orbit as the original microsats reach the end of their lifespans.
