Planet

Planet (for­merly Planet Labs) is a space imag­ing and ana­lyt­ics com­pany that assem­bles low-​​cost, off-​​the-​​shelf elec­tron­ics into advanced microsatel­lites using agile aero­space tech­nolo­gies. The com­pany launches fleets of low-​​earth orbit imag­ing satel­lites called Doves that map the entire Earth on a monthly, and even­tu­ally on a weekly and then daily basis to bet­ter under­stand our chang­ing planet and ecosystems.

Planet’s global, whole Earth cov­er­age and rapid cadence of imag­ing allow cus­tomers to under­stand and respond to change at a local and global scale, and also open up new mar­kets for satel­lite imag­ing and data analy­sis services.

Planet works closely with a range of part­ners in envi­ron­men­tal, social, and human­i­tar­ian sec­tors, includ­ing the Packard and Rock­e­feller Foun­da­tions, USAID, and Human­ity United to make its Earth imagery data avail­able for impact-​​oriented appli­ca­tions such as food secu­rity, envi­ron­men­tal mon­i­tor­ing, urban plan­ning, dis­as­ter response, pub­lic health and cli­mate resilience.
