Following the successful December 8, 2021, Rocket Lab launch, BlackSky’s satellites delivered first insights in less than 18 hours. BlackSky’s Spectra AI platform tasks the company’s 12-satellite constellation to collect and analyze insights on economic activity, patterns of life, and more.
“This successful Rocket Lab launch marks our final BlackSky mission for 2021,” said Nick Merski, BlackSky chief operations officer. “With each successive launch BlackSky continues to commission our satellites at unprecedented speed and deliver revenue-generating intelligence products to customers within a day of launch.”
“Adding two more satellites increases our constellation’s revisit rates dramatically and we’re bringing the value of that benefit to our customers instantly,” he said.
BlackSky achieved a 12 small satellite constellation following the successful “A Data with Destiny” mission.
