Next week from June 2 to June 5, Planet will be in San Antonio, Texas at the annual GEOINT Symposium—the largest U.S. gathering of government, industry and academia that includes intelligence and homeland security communities, Fed/Civil, defense, and state and local geospatial intelligence stakeholders.
In our booth on the show floor, Planet will be highlighting our latest innovations and product developments, including analytics capabilities that allow customers and intelligence community partners to arrive at insights more quickly and easily.
Planet is excited to engage with current and potential customers and intelligence community members who have innovative ideas for uses of Planet’s data, and looks forward to building new relationships.
“Planet is always pushing to improve our inventions and drive innovation,” says Jen Marcus, vice president of USG Federal Operations at Planet. “It’s valuable for us to engage with current and future customers so that we can evaluate how our commercial data set might support more of the critical mission needs of our U.S. Defense and Intelligence communities.”
Knowing the value of our unique tools, Planet has made a concerted effort to partner closely with government agencies to help them achieve their goals by providing them access to Planet’s commercial imagery and data.
In March, the NGA renewed their third contract since 2016 with Planet, extending the NGA’s subscription access to daily imagery over select areas of the Earth. And in April, Planet signed a multi-million dollar agreement with NASA, granting the agency access to Dove and SkySat data. This partnership supports NASA’s ability to assess essential climate variables—those that contribute to the characterization of the Earth’s climate like precipitation, glaciers, fire disturbance, etc.—and Planet will be contributing to over 35 ongoing NASA research projects.
“The uses of Planet’s data and imagery are vast and ever-evolving across global national security needs,” says Marcus. “It’s exciting to see how different organizations are finding additional utility applied to their particular areas of responsibility.”
