THE PELICAN CONSTELLATION

A Leap Forward

When operational, Pelican will be Planet’s next-generation satellite constellation to replenish and upgrade the 21 SkySats in orbit today.

Designed with the future in mind, Pelican is planned to offer orders-of-magnitude improvements in capacity, speed, and accuracy.

From higher revisit, to higher resolution, to ultra-fast acquisition, Pelican is designed to provide a leap forward in capabilities, giving you the information you need to act confidently in the face of change.

Expansive Coverage

Up to 30 satellites

More Captures

Up to 30 captures per day

Higher Daily Revisits

Approximately30 minute revisit time

Greater Precision

 30cm resolution


How It Can  Help

Stay Ahead Through Continuous  Change

The Pelican constellation is designed to efficiently capture fleeting and emerging events, especially those that may anticipate new patterns or risk.

Rapid Order &  Delivery

Place an order and receive data back before things escalate. Leveraging third-party communications satellites, Pelican will offer reduced latency for downloading data, creating shorter time loops between tasking and receiving data across the world.

Higher Revisit

Understand change over a single day or at a specific time. Pelican is designed to offer customers increased rapid revisit opportunities, with 12 imaging opportunities per day over most of the Earth, and up to 30 per day in mid-latitudes.
