Newsletter Q1-2021

An Exciting Year Ahead

2020 has been truly challenging for all of us around the globe. Despite that, we’ve achieved everything we set out to do this year, and more. And we’ve set even more ambitious goals for the coming year, including new launches planned with SpaceX, our newest launch partner

Over the course of the year, market demand for geospatial insights continued to grow at a rapid pace. We’ve increased our in-orbit capacity to continue to meet this demand; indeed, as a result of our efforts in 2020, Satellogic is now the global leader in high-resolution data collection from space, with up to four daily revisits of any point of interest and the capability to collect more than 4 million sq km per day at sub-meter resolution. In 2020 we also launched our Global Consortium of Geospatial Imagery. Leveraging our Earth Observation satellite constellation, our affiliates can now provide end customers with high resolution, high frequency, affordable geospatial data. 

We want to thank all our partners and – most of all – our customers. We look forward to working with all of you in 2021 and continuing our mission of providing decision makers around the globe with the highest quality, real time imagery and insights they need to build, maintain, and grow their businesses and operations. 

In 2021 we will be launching from the USA. We are proud to announce our new multiple launch agreement with SpaceX. Through the agreement SpaceX becomes our preferred vendor for rideshare missions. 

This partnership puts us in a unique position to capitalize on SpaceX’s competitive rideshare program and frequent launch schedule. We will be able to accelerate the time between satellite development and deployment and continue to rapidly expand our in-orbit capacity while also increasing revisit capabilities to monitor the planet on a high frequency basis, serving customers at the right price.

The first launch, scheduled for June 2021, will deliver our satellites to Low Earth Orbit on a Falcon 9 rocket. We expect to complete the initial buildout of our Earth Observation Constellation by the end of 2022. At that point we will have the capacity to deliver weekly, high-resolution remaps of the entire planet. Through a series of rideshare launches over the next two years and beyond, we will be moving from weekly to daily world remaps by 2025 with more than 300 microsatellites in orbit. 

Our industry-leading capacity and today’s MLA with SpaceX represents a new and exciting phase in our growing relationship with the US government and commercial partners and customers.

Our Dedicated Satellite Constellation (DSC) solution offers governments, organizations, and enterprises the opportunity to develop geospatial imaging programs at unmatched frequency, resolution and cost.  Our unique satellite-as-a-service model allows us to give our customers access to geospatial insights with no capital outlay and no technical or operational risks.

In 2020, we launched our DSC Test Drive platform. The platform puts the power of our geospatial intelligence engine directly in the hands of potential customers, enabling them to directly task satellites over designated areas of interest. 

In the coming months, we will continue to develop Test Drive for improved access to geo-intelligence information and its interpretation, automating this process for knowledge capitalization. 

By democratizing access to geospatial analytics and insights, we aim to give decision makers the ability to radically improve their operations using the most advanced technology. Our new platform is, from server to satellite, the most powerful solution available, allowing users to gain a competitive edge with affordable, rich, dynamic geospatial insights from a data-constellation that they control.

In 2020 we successfully completed three launches, including our first dedicated rocket, adding a total of 13 satellites to our constellation. Named after exceptional scientists, these spacecraft continue our tradition -started in 2018-, of honoring outstanding women in STEM of all times. These accomplished women inspire us and reinforce our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.

Today, Satellogic leads the Earth-Observation industry in terms of in-orbit capacity for high-resolution, high-frequency imagery. In 2021, we’re excited to continue to grow our fleet and offer new capabilities to our Dedicated Satellite Constellation customers while expanding our industry-specific offering and data-science services. At Satellogic we continuously invest in pushing the possibilities of geospatial and satellite technology to help solve the world’s most pressing problems.
