On Friday 6 November, Satellogic, the first company to develop a scalable Earth observation platform with the ability to remap the entire planet at both high-frequency and high-resolution, announced the successful dedicated launch of 10 new satellites to their Aleph-1 constellation.
These 10 new satellites expands the company’s data-delivery capabilities, securing Satellogic’s place as a global leader in high-resolution data collection from space. The increased orbital capacity enables access to up to four daily revisits of any point of interest globally and the collection of more than 4 million sq. km per day in Very High Resolution (VHR) imagery. Satellogic’s in-orbit fleet is now comprised of 21 satellites, 14 of which are used to deliver VHR data to customers.
“Timely access to geospatial analytics enables governments and key decision makers to build resilient processes and maintain their competitive edge, particularly in times of uncertainty or dramatic change,” said Satellogic Founder and CEO, Emiliano Kargieman. “We’re excited to put the power of our growing constellation directly in the hands of our customers and empower them to make better decisions, supported by up-to-date and high-resolution geospatial imagery.”
Satellogic’s newest generation of satellites operates at 0.7 meter resolution, enabling a more detailed view of the globe for more precise decision making. Through their partnership as part of the Global Consortium of Geospatial Imagery, European Space Imaging will have access to these satellites to provide their customers with high resolution, high frequency and affordable geospatial data. Each of the spacecraft carries both sub-meter multispectral and a 29-band hyperspectral sensor. These satellites complement the company’s existing offer of Very High Resolution satellite imagery at True 30 cm resolution allowing European Space Imaging to provide data to suit every customers’ needs.
“We are extremely excited at the success of this launch for Satellogic and what it means for our partnership,” said Adrian Zevenbergen, Managing Director at European Space Imaging. “These satellites significantly expand our capacity to provide imagery to the European market. With further satellite launches to the Aleph-1 constellation planned for the future, our offering becomes stronger and stronger thus opening up a new era of opportunities at European Space Imaging”.
Through their innovative partnerships, European Space Imaging now has access to 25 orbiting satellites at resolutions of 30 cm – 1 m and with a combined daily revisit of close to 10 times per day. The data from the Satellogic satellites will be accessible by European Space Imaging, supplementing their already extensive archive of satellite imagery dating back to 1999 further cementing the companies’ reputation for being a leader in premium satellite imagery within Europe.
