Commercial SmallSat Data Acquisition Program
The Commercial Smallsat Data Acquisition (CSDA) Program was established to identify, evaluate, and acquire data from commercial providers that support NASA's Earth science research and application goals.
Through this program, all federally funded research qualifies for free access to Planet’s vast archive of PlanetScope imagery for scientific use and Earth science applications for societal benefit.
Rapidly onboard with Planet using a range of self-guided tutorials and guides that help you take advantage of our unprecedented dataset and platform.
Live and on-demand training and topical education sessions are held throughout the year.
