A growing portion of the commercial “NewSpace” industry is the acquisition of Earth observation data from satellites built and operated by private companies. Satellite images offered by commercial companies have resolutions as much as an order of magnitude better than the highest-resolution publicly available government-owned counterparts. This jump unlocks resolutions previously only obtainable by government reconnaissance satellites. Thanks to these improvements, private companies have emerged as some of the top providers of key data for Earth observation. This talk will give an overview of the current players in the game and their offerings and capabilities.
