Planet Analytics enable governments to respond to events with rapid analysis — and inform policy and planning.
Combined with machine learning and artificial intelligence, Planet transforms daily imagery into analytic feeds that:
Skysat • Earthquake Damage in Marash, Turkey. February 9, 2023. UC Berkeley, the US Department of Defense Innovation Unit, Maxar, Microsoft AI for Good Lab and Microsoft Philanthropies
RESILIENT CONSTELLATIONS MEAN RELIABLE DATA
The Planet agile aerospace fleet provides a diversified collection of imagery and communication paths.
With hundreds of medium-resolution SuperDoves and approximately 20 high-resolution satellites in orbit, our process to build, launch, and replenish our fleet is fast and economical.

October 12, 2021 - December 29, 2021 | Yelnya, Russia
This pair of high-resolution SkySat images shows the buildup of Russian infrastructure and vehicles about 160 miles (260 kilometers) north of Ukraine.
PlanetScope daily monitoring and high-resolution SkySat tasking improved situational awareness on the ground and acted as a source of truth to counter misinformation online.
February 23, 2022 | Mediterranean Sea
Satellite imagery shows the Russian Navy as they sailed in the Mediterranean Sea.
Over the course of the crisis, PlanetScope imagery has been used to enhance maritime domain awareness.
February 27, 2022 | Belgorod Oblast, Russia
External intelligence researchers used Planet imagery to identify likely sources of Russian missile attacks.
The plume of smoke rises from what analysts determined to be a probable Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS) oriented in the direction of Kharkiv.
March 2022 | Borodyanka, Ukraine
Planet worked with the United Nations and Microsoft’s AI for Good Lab to assess the extent of structural damage caused by the war, identifying affected schools, hospitals, and sanitation facilities.
June 5, 2002 | Sevastopol, Ukraine
Planet enables analysts to conduct advanced maritime vessel detection and tracking.
External investigators reported an alleged laundering system of grain stolen from Ukraine by analyzing SkySat images of multiple vessels as they were loaded in port, and conducted ship-to-ship transfers out at sea while “dark.”
July 2022 | Ukraine
Near the frontline of the conflict, fields were left unharvested.
NASA Harvest used Planet imagery to calculate yields so governments and organizations could better see crop output in effected areas, and take appropriate compensatory measures.
Planet imagery has proven critical to intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) missions throughout the conflict in Ukraine through rapid satellite tasking and information downlink.
Open, shareable data and the urgency of the conflict has catalyzed technology and humanitarian solutions that will have positive, global implications beyond this war.
