Business description: Planet is driven by a mission to image the entire Earth every day, and make global change visible, accessible, and actionable. We started as a small team of physicists, aerospace and mechanical engineers in a garage, using the cubesat form-factor to inform the first designs of our Dove satellite. Just two years after our first satellite entered space, Planet now operates the largest constellation of Earth-imaging satellites...ever. Our satellites are collecting a radical new data set with endless, real-world applications. Whether you’re measuring agricultural yields, monitoring natural resources, or aiding first responders after natural disasters, our data is here to lend businesses and humanitarian organizations a helping hand. Planet believes timely, global imagery will empower informed, deliberate and meaningful stewardship of our planet. At Planet we have redefined every part of the Earth-imaging pipeline to quickly deliver actionable insights. We’ve built our entire platform - from satellites to APIs - using the latest components of the consumer electronics industry and open source software. We’ve innovated at every step, bringing it all together in a complete Imaging-as-a-Service platform.
