Based on the UniBus 3U cubesat platform developed by SatRevolution, STORK-4 and STORK-5 are the first optical satellites to be launched as part of the company’s 14-satellite STORK constellation. Once deployed, STORK-4 and STORK-5 will collect multi-spectral medium-resolution imagery and data for agricultural and energy customers in the US, Poland, and globally.
SkyWatch’s TerraStream platform will provide data management, ordering, processing, and delivery services for the upcoming mission. The turnkey data management platform allows satellite operators to focus on developing core intellectual property while scaling a business with analysis-ready data and reduced time to market.
Integration with SkyWatch’s EarthCache platform, which provides application developers and GIS specialists with satellite imagery at scale, allows TerraStream customers to expand their market reach and add a new revenue stream to their business from day one.
“At SatRevolution, we believe that remote sensing can help solve problems around the world, from recovering from natural disasters, to helping farmers improve crop yield,” said Grzegorz Zwolinski, CEO at SatRevolution. “However, the barriers to entering the satellite market are really high. Working with SkyWatch has allowed us to enter this new market faster and more profitably.”
“We’re honored to have been selected by our friends at SatRevolution to support their STORK mission,” said James Slifierz, CEO at SkyWatch. “Enabling new and exciting commercial satellite operators is the key to further democratizing Earth observation data, and we’re thrilled to partner with SatRevolution to bring this high-quality and affordable data down to Earth and into the hands of people who need it most, via the TerraStream and EarthCache platforms.”
