“Our world needs real-time geospatial intelligence now more than ever,” said Nick Merski, BlackSky chief operations officer. “The rapid integration of these two satellites into commercial operations immediately boosts the capacity of our constellation and the frequency of hourly revisits for our customers that need real-time insights. Customers rely on BlackSky for timely, critical, and accurate insights and analytics. For example, commercial companies keep track on supply chains and their competition and humanitarian organizations and governments monitor conflict zones.”
The company’s expanded constellation enhances its ability to monitor and analyze the most strategic activities, locations, and economic assets in the world for its customers around the globe. The expansion of its constellation improves BlackSky’s daily dawn-to-dusk site monitoring and increases the frequency at which the company can image and analyze a particular site with an average daily revisit rate of eight to ten times a day in most locations in the world.
