Planet, Airbus Join to Develop Imagery and Sensing Solutions
Planet and Airbus have signed an agreement that will see the two companies developing a suite of new geospatial solutions. The two companies will provide customers with a comprehensive range of global remote sensing data at multiple temporal and spatial resolutions, and to collaborate on new analytic solutions for a range of commercial markets.
Airbus will provide reliable, high-resolution remote sensing capabilities, and Planet will contribute the unique global coverage, temporal cadence, and rapid iteration capabilities it has become known for since emerging in the industry. Together, both partners will be able to deliver new and sophisticated offerings to fit customer needs across markets, globally.
Airbus’s constellation is comprised of very high-resolution Pléiades 1A and 1B; the high-resolution SPOT 6 and SPOT 7 satellites and the DMC constellation. On the radar side, TerraSAR-X, TanDEM-X, and the PAZ radar satellites ensure customers have access to any location whatever the cloud coverage. Planet’s constellation offers daily, global 3-5 meter resolution imagery via its more than 130 PlanetScope satellites and sub-daily, sub-1 meter resolution imagery of anywhere on Earth with its constellation of 13 SkySats.
