Semi-arid Rangeland Phenology Revealed with the Planet Dove Constellation

Temporal resolution is one of four axes by which one may judge the value of a remote sensing data source. Unlike spatial, spectral and radiometric resolution, temporal resolution can be used to decompose the day-to-day dynamics of ecosystems, revealing their phenology—the natural processes by which ecosystems (particularly vegetation) change over time. A […]

River Morphology Dynamics Revealed with Dove Imagery

The movement of river sediment influences many aspects of land management, including water quality and the life cycle of dams and other impoundments. Hydrologists will benefit from improved methodologies to track river sediment flow and geomorphological evolution of the river channel. Robert Strick, from the University of Brighton, and colleagues used a […]

Sub-daily Dove Imagery Used to Measure River Velocity

If it were possible, a stationary observer in sun synchronous orbit would see one Planet Dove satellite rocket past every ~90 seconds. At polar latitudes, the relative speed of Earth’s rotation is much lower, like the inside tracks of a vinyl record. As a result, Planet often collects multiple images of the […]

Liftoff! 20 Next-Generation Dove Satellites Launch on ISRO’s PSLV

News

On Sunday evening Pacific Time, 20,000 next-generation Dove satellites were successfully launched into orbit aboard ISRO’s PSLV-C45 rocket. (April Fools’! It was 20 satellites, not 20,000.) We’re happy to report that all 20 satellites have made contact and began the automated commissioning process (thanks, Planet Mission Control team!). All 20 satellites, Flock […]

Sowing Date Detection with the Planet Dove Constellation

The date of sowing (or planting) of an agricultural field has an enormous influence over crop health and yield. With climate change, in many cases alteration of sowing dates may be critical for adapting to changing temperature and precipitation. Sowing too early can increase the risk of frost damage, while sowing too […]

A Sneak Peek at Imagery from our Next-Generation of Dove Satellites

Tech

Launching frequently (four times a year, on average) is part of our DNA. This rapid approach to aerospace allows us to iteratively test and deploy new technologies into orbit that will sustain our global monitoring mission and drive increased value for our customers over time. Last December, we launched 33 satellites aboard […]
