EarthDaily Analytics Announces Mission Partners for the EarthDaily Satellite Constellation

EarthDaily Analytics Corp., a vertically-integrated data processing and analytics company pairing cutting-edge Big Data tools with proven Space technologies, announces the initial mission partners for the Company’s EarthDaily Constellation of 9 super-spectral satellites. The EarthDaily Constellation will provide unprecedented daily global coverage of the Earth’s land masses, significantly enhancing geospatial analytics capabilities to provide value-added insights in industries including agriculture, Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG), insurance, disaster prevention and recovery, commodities trading, and more by the end of 2023.

EDA’s lead partner for this mission is Loft Orbital Solutions Inc. (“Loft Orbital”), which in turn has contracted with Europe’s largest aeronautics and space company, Airbus, to supply satellite buses based on Airbus’ OneWeb heritage and production lines, incorporating a range of technical improvements in line with EarthDaily’s ultra-high performance requirements.  EDA’s contract with Loft Orbital includes 10 satellite buses (including an in-orbit spare), integration of the imaging payloads into the satellites, launch, and spacecraft operations. Loft Orbital will also provide the systems and services that enable EDA to operate the imaging payloads and downlink the data directly to its cloud-based ground segment.

International private equity firm Antarctica Capital announced the formation of EarthDaily Analytics Corporation in April 2021 and has committed to support the construction of the $150M EarthDaily Constellation. EarthDaily Analytics has developed a market leading, proprietary, cloud-native, fully automated SaaS data processing platform, EarthPipeline, that transforms raw satellite data into ultra-high quality image products. These products are direct-to-algorithm ready and power artificial intelligence-based analytics products and services. The fully automated nature of the EarthPipeline enables “no humans in the loop” operation that is critical to cost effectively managing the extraordinary scale of processing required for the daily global coverage of the EarthDaily Constellation.

Construction of the EarthDaily Constellation satellites began in September 2021, with launches scheduled for 2023. The constellation will collect scientific-grade, 5 meter resolution imagery of the planet in a unique combination of 22 spectral bands using 3 different camera types, covering a broad spectral range from visible to thermal wavelengths, to support a range of geoanalytics applications across diverse end markets.
