July 3rd, 2018, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Airbus and Planet have partnered to facilitate access to each other’s data and the co-development of new geospatial solutions, by establishing a framework agreement to explore opportunities for joint cooperation in new and existing markets, product offerings, sales and marketing efforts. Both partners aim to provide a comprehensive suite of global satellite data at multiple temporal and spatial resolutions, and developing new analytic products for a wide range of applications to the benefit of their customers. The partnership reflects the high-value assets of each provider for addressing ever-growing, demanding needs for continuous monitoring and accurate information. Benefitting from both companies’ constellations, customers will have access to the entire Earth’s landmass every day at 3 m resolution with PlanetScope satellites, as well as to intra-daily sub-meter resolution imagery with Pléiades and SkySat constellations. In addition, they will also have the capability to order images with resolutions of 1,5m (SPOT 6/7), 5 m (Rapideye) and 22 m (DMC Constellation). Lastly, TerraSAR-X, TanDEM-X and PAZ radar satellites will allow the acquisition of images regardless of weather and daylight conditions.
