BlackSky offers two imagery services that are simple and powerful. Customers can use “On-Demand“, to task satellites with the explicit purpose of capturing images over any area of interest and the entire process takes just minutes to complete. For larger customers who have specific regions of the globe that need persistent, guaranteed monitoring, they can leverage our “Assured“, program which partitions specific non-contestable capacity for mission-critical needs.
A subscription service with flexible access to satellite imagery and ad-hoc image tasking.
Pre-selected dedicated image collection capacity coupled with on-demand tasking and priority guarantees.
Fast, flexible, and affordable access to the BlackSky constellation that will fit your specific needs. Through On-Demand, you also can access BlackSky analytics like Detect, Events and Site Monitoring.
Ability to task the constellation during all daylight hours.
Customizable Priority Levels
Increase priority tasking to monitor critical events.
Low latency image delivery and the ability to manage your own dossier images and analytics.
Using your laptop or smartphone – just point and click.
Integrated marketplace for third-party imaging including optical and SAR satellites.
All the advantages of a full constellation with Spectra AI-powered analysis over specific areas of interest – whether you have time-critical needs or require persistent capacity.
- Supports highly predictable and persistent imagery needs
- Capacity assurance
- Imagery tasking that cannot be pre-empted
- Includes all on-demand features
- Service level agreements
- Access to Detect, Events and Site Monitoring
BlackSky’s Image Archive enables customers to discover, purchase, and download archive imagery from our catalog. All customers get additional access to our global network of constellation providers including; KOMPSAT, Landsat, Sentinel, TripleSat, and Urthecast.
This product is excellent value for customers who need large land area coverage, collection density optionality, and a combination of imagery scene types.
Ordering is simple, fast, and on-demand.
Access to millions of events occurring throughout the world with multi-source, multi-phenomenology event detection including:
Maximizing Data Sources
Through the fusion of multiple data sources, including news, IoT sensors, RSS feeds, and geolocation, BlackSky can detect and track activity around the globe creating contextual data.
Leveraging AI & Natural Language Processing
As events occur, Spectra AI filters and sifts many different data feeds using natural language processing to generate highly relevant customer alerts for each type of event based on topics customers choose in real-time.
Tip and Cue
Once matching events are identified they can be automatically tipped and cued for our constellation to capture imagery. This system provides images without a person needing to task the satellites in real-time and as events happen. Low latency equals faster access to actionable data.
