Using satellite images the Satellogic way
Doesn't a global scale issue demand a global level approach? We’re talking about pressing matters like climate change, environmental conservation, deforestation, and drought just to name a few.
The magnitude and sheer scale of these calls for a solution, or rather an approach, that takes the entire globe into account. After all, it's all interconnected. Interestingly, the answer to our questions might just be looking down on us right now.
Earth Observation satellites! Satellite images can put the entire globe in one frame. Why not use high quality satellite derived insights to get a bird’s eye view on global challenges?
Satellogic - Democratizing access to critical spatial information
Introducing Satellogic, a company that is committed to making satellite imagery more affordable and accessible, enabling more organizations to innovate and, ultimately, improve life on Earth.
Using high resolution satellite imagery, Satellogic is creating a live catalog of the Earth that will update global coverage weekly, and by 2025, daily. These valuable spatial datasets are in turn used by key stakeholders for decision making in their respective fields.
How do they do it? Satellogic has reinvented the modern satellite by launching microsatellites - a smaller, lighter, and more cost-effective satellite that can be produced at scale. The microsatellites have been installed with state-of-the-art multispectral cameras that make detailed imagery (0.7 meter resolution imagery) a possibility. Each microsatellite is also equipped with a hyperspectral camera and full-motion video capabilities.
Being creators of the components of a satellite itself, their development team was able to put together a device that can not only capture high resolution images but can also be manufactured at a fraction of the cost.
Being a futuristic product with countless use cases, microsatellites have gained interests from organizations all over the world. The satellite imagery is used for decision making, monitoring and prediction modelling and is turning out to be a key component of spatial data science.
How does Ellipsis Drive support the Satellogic mission?
Being such an inquisitive product, potential customers are always wanting a taste of what microsatellites can do. With a new age product, awareness is key. It is crucial for Satellogic’s sales team to be equipped with sample images to show customers that such a powerful product offering does exist.
