SAR and 40cm Optical Satellite Imagery Tasking with SpyMeSat Mobile App

GREENBELT, MD - June 1st, 2017 –  Orbit Logic announced today that SpyMeSat mobile app users can now send new tasking requests to the KOMPSAT-5 Synthetic Aperture RADAR (SAR) imaging satellite and KOMPSAT-3A high resolution (40cm) optical imaging satellite.  KOMPSAT-5 is the first SAR satellite available for tasking in SpyMeSat and KOMPSAT-3A is now the highest resolution satellite available for tasking in SpyMeSat.  Including these two new satellites, SpyMeSat users can now select from eight different high resolution (1m or better) imaging satellites for new tasking. 

“We’re excited to expand our relationship with SI Imaging Services to add KOMPSAT-3A and KOMPSAT-5.” said Alex Herz, president of Orbit Logic, “These two satellites expand SpyMeSat resolution and imaging type boundaries for our customers around the world. SAR satellites can see through clouds and can image day or night, providing many more frequent and reliable imaging opportunities.  And 40cm resolution optical satellite imagery is just about as good as it gets from commercial satellites.”

SpyMeSat provides real-time imaging satellite awareness, on-demand access to archive satellite imagery, and the ability to request new tasking directly from a mobile device. The most recent, highest resolution commercial satellite archive imagery of any location is available to the user through an easy and affordable in-app purchase process. The entire process of preview, select, purchase and delivery of archived imagery can be completed in seconds, delivering satellite imagery for any location on demand. When archive imagery does not meet the need, and a new image is required, users can review the list of satellites available through SpyMeSat for new tasking, and make a selection based on cost, responsiveness, and capability.

Prices for recent archive images through SpyMeSat start as low as $9.99, and new tasking options start at $375 – making SpyMeSat the most affordable and convenient option on the market for high resolution satellite imagery.  Archive satellite imagery resolution ranges from 30cm – 50cm, and the resolution for new tasking ranges from 40cm to 1m.
