BlackSky's First To Know Insights
- Varreux Fuel Terminal in Haiti
BlackSky imagery shows the blockade of the Varreux fuel terminal in Haiti amid its fuel crisis. For deeper analysis, including nighttime imagery overlays of Portau Prince, view our ArcGIS story map here: https://arcg.is/D9m4
- Zaphorizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant
BlackSky capabilities give first space-based confirmation that the Zaphorizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant cooling systems were partially active yesterday afternoon and this morning, as indicated by non-operating spray systems to the south and water flow into the cooling pond west of the reactor complex. Early morning, low-light, images also show cooling tower lights operational.
- Black Rock City, Nevada, USA
Enter Sandman! BlackSky captured imagery of 35 mph winds causing a sandstorm over Burning Man Project earlier this month. Check out the full time-lapse here: https://storymaps.arcgis.com/stories/92b0714d8c9c49d9a1e441f6b4ed517b
- Kavachi Volcano, Solomon Islands
This isn’t Sharknado… it’s Sharkano.
Also known as the Kavachi Submarine Volcano, it’s named for the species of shark that lives in the area. The volcano has been erupting since October 2021 and is one of the most active volcanoes in the Pacific. Take a look at the BlackSky imagery of volcanic eruptions from June through July this year.
- Barcelona, Spain
Dawn-to-dusk analytics and imagery captured on April 18, 2022, over Josep Tarradellas Barcelona-El Prat Airport, Spain, showcase new aircraft type classification, one of many new features recently released as part of BlackSky’s Enhanced Site Monitoring capabilities. The combination of new analytics and imaging features with automated anomaly alerts and high-revisit imaging provides customers with deeper insights into operational fleet trends.
- PORT ELIZABETH, SOUTH AFRICA
Three images were collected in rapid succession over Port Elizabeth, South Africa, on August 10, 2020, at 11:31 a.m. local time. By analyzing these images, BlackSky is able to extract critical economic and financial indicators to offer a near real-time view of commercial activity in Port Elizabeth.
- HANEDA AIRPORT, TOKYO
Using high-revisit satellite imagery, BlackSky’s Spectra AI has detected the utilization of major facilities at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport. Parking spaces shown in green are rarely used, while red indicates frequent occupancy. BlackSky customers can also understand inflow/outflow of cargo and monitor airline maintenance activity.
