PlanetScope data represent today’s
best trade-off between spatial resolution,
revisit frequency and cost
PlanetScope data represent today’s best trade-offs in resolution (3m), revisit frequency (less than a day), and cost for optical satellite imagery. Dedicated Kayrros data processing tools extract the greatest information from PlanetScope data, including state-of-the-art cloud detection for reliable readings, machine-learning-driven change detection, and custom labeling interfaces for large datasets.
Number of Satellites: 120+
Sensor Type: Optical Multi-Spectral (Four Bands: R, G, B, NIR)
Revisit times: Daily
Kayrros Rapid Response – Abqaiq
On September 14, 2019, Saudi Arabia’s Abqaiq oil processing facility was attacked by drones.
Within 24 hours, Kayrros provided key information in near realtime on daily crude oil storage in the country using PlanetScope high-frequency data. Kayrros users were able to make the most informed decisions during a critical major event.
