Spaceflight Industries Unveils New Imagery Service, Airbus Satellites Added
Spaceflight Industries has revealed BlackSky Spectra, its on-demand satellite imagery service which enables customers to discover archive images and task new images from 13 high-resolution imaging spacecraft through a web platform. BlackSky Spectra enables customers to look at the planet across every spectrum, from visual imagery to multi-spectral data including Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), hyperspectral data, and radio frequency detection, which provides a more comprehensive view of the world, according to the company. Users can also directly task these satellites by selecting a specific location on a map and indicating how often they want a picture taken.
In addition, the company announced Airbus’s Pléiades, SPOT6/7, KazEOSat 1, and TerraSAR-X are the latest sensors to join the BlackSky network. Other spacecraft include 21AT’s TripleSat, SIIS’s KOMPSAT2/3/3A/5, and UrtheCast’s Deimos 2. The addition of Airbus sensors to BlackSky Spectra significantly increases the high-resolution tasking capacity and archive content available to users. Together, this ecosystem represents the largest network of high-resolution sensors accessible from an online catalog, according to Spaceflight Industries.
