The latest news from the Terra Bella team
SkySat-4-7 First Light
Tuesday, September 27, 2016
Today, we’re excited to share the first on-orbit images from our four newest high-resolution imaging satellites, SkySat-4-7, which were successfully launched aboard an
Arianespace Vega rocket
from French Guiana on September 15, 2016. The following images of Google headquarters in Mountain View, Rome, Amsterdam, and Algeciras
Spain are untuned and uncalibrated.
This was our first multi-spacecraft deployment and we’re pleased that SkySat-4-7 has joined our three on-orbit satellites, SkySat-1-3, which have now collected over 100M images since their respective launches!
Now with the world’s largest commercial constellation of high-resolution Earth imaging satellites, we are excited to continue capturing high-cadence information about our changing world.
Onwards and Upwards!
