We are proud to announce GEOSYS has entered a long-term agreement with UrtheCast as the agriculture anchor customer for the UrtheDaily Constellation. This planned constellation of eight Earth observation satellites will deliver daily, 5m resolution imagery of the planet’s landmass – producing scientific-grade data and eliminating the present-day tradeoff between frequency and resolution.
With the needs of our customers top-of-mind, we have been working collaboratively with the UrtheCast group in recent years to conceptualize and design the UrtheDaily Constellation. By providing a more consistent stream of high-quality data, we can empower a more profitable decisions-making process.
“GEOSYS has 30 years of experience in the industry and views this flow of data as a highly innovative technical and commercial game changer for in-season field monitoring,” says Damien Lepoutre, GEOSYS founder and president. “The UrtheDaily Constellation is being built on a heritage of proven technology and is the only solution we’ve seen clearly designed to meet our demanding data requirements.”
We anticipate data from the UrtheDaily Constellation will be available in early 2020.
