Welcome to the second instalment of our ‘Partner-in-Focus’ post! Each month, GI will be highlighting one of our Partners over our social media channels. Our Partner-in-Focus for October is BlackSky.
BlackSky provides real-time, dynamic monitoring to the most critical and strategic locations, economic assets, and events on Earth. BlackSky’s two imagery services – ‘BlackSky On-Demand’ and ‘BlackSky Assured’ – give end users the flexibility to capture imagery, from high resolution optical to Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), to suit business needs.
BlackSky On-Demand provides flexible access to satellite imagery and ad-hoc image tasking, with the capacity to capture images over any area of interest, with the entire process taking just minutes to complete. The BlackSky Assured program partitions specific non-contestable capacity for mission-critical needs, providing pre-selected dedicated image collection capacity coupled with on-demand tasking and priority guarantees. This is particularly useful for clients who have time-critical needs or require persistent capacity. BlackSky also boast an extensive on-demand archive service, which includes additional access to their global network of constellation providers including; KOMPSAT, Landsat, Sentinel, TripleSat, and Urthecast.
