Planet for Defense and  Intelligence

Planet's Global Daily Data Transforms Perceived Risk into Observational  Truth

Planet pairs persistent global satellite monitoring with low latency tasking to deliver early intelligence across shifting geopolitical landscapes. With machine learning-based analytic feeds, Planet provides intelligence groups and defense organizations with the data required for informed decision-making and enhanced crisis management.

Global Scale

Track and search borders, remote geographies, and coastal waters with 350+ million square kilometers of imagery captured daily

Imagery Archive

Leverage 10+ billion square kilometers of archive imagery to predict and understand events

Daily Collection Assurance

Daily global monitoring powered by 200+ satellites without the need for tasking

Rapid, Flexible Tasking

High-resolution satellite tasking available on demand

Streamlined Access and Integration

Intuitive API, cloud-based processing, ArcGIS Pro, and QGIS integrations

Increase access to geospatial data with Planet’s range of scalable satellite solutions. The PlanetScope constellation monitors the Earth’s entire landmass and strategic areas of interest every day at 3.7 meter resolution, and the SkySat constellation can task collections of 50-centimeter satellite imagery sub-daily.

Planet Analytics allows you to identify and quantify change. With Planet's machine learning-powered feature extraction, observe these developments in isolation, and make decisions accordingly. Planet's automated object detection analytics allows you to observe patterns of life, monitor abnormalities, and inform activity-based assessments.
