BlackSky claims 'highest revisit rate in the world'


(13 Dec 2021) BlackSky's said its high-resolution small satellite constellation has the highest revisit rate in the world, with a peak of 15 hourly visits per day over certain locations. The real-time geospatial intelligence company recently achieved a 12 small satellite constellation, doubling its imaging capacity.

In less than 30 days the company launched six satellites on three different missions using two launch providers across two continents. Following each respective mission, the satellites achieved first light within hours after launch and were successfully commissioned into operations within 48 hours.

Completing the 12-satellite constellation follows a year of high-paced execution that included raising US$283 million during its IPO in September, a multi-year investment partnership with Palantir, and capturing several U.S. Government contracts.
