Earth Observation – Flock 1b
Planet Labs launches the next installment of the NanoRacks-Planet Labs–Dove series, another fleet of 28 Earth imaging nanosatellites individually known as the “Dove” satellites, and collectively known as “Flock 1b”, to image the changing planet.
These nanosatellites work in unison with Flock 1 to enable imagery of the entire planet to be taken on a more frequent basis. Humanitarian applications range from monitoring deforestation and the ice caps to disaster relief and improving agriculture yields in developing nations.
Planet Labs provides universal access to this entirely unprecedented data set, with the goal of enabling maximal utility of the data.
