Happy Birthday, SkySat-1!
Tuesday, November 24, 2015
It’s hard to believe that just 2 years ago we
our first satellite, SkySat-1. Who would have known such a new technology built by a small team would be able to pioneer the first commercial sub-meter imagery, high-resolution full motion
, and nighttime
from a small satellite. To us, SkySat-1 will always symbolize the power of camaraderie and perseverance.
To commemorate SkySat-1’s birthday, we created the montage below with over 22,500 downsampled thumbnails of images collected by SkySat-1 during its second year in space. The full, 600 DPI image, is downloadable
As SkySat-1 and SkySat-2 continue to capture deep stacks of beautiful images and videos across the globe, we have been busy over the last year working to leverage Google’s resources and smarts to lay the foundation to scale. Next year will be a big year for us as we prepare for the launch of 10+ next generation satellites on 3 different rockets from 3 different continents.
Onwards and upwards!
