About Us

EARTH-i is at the forefront of the commercialisation of space. Our vision is that a reliable flow of Earth Observation data from space will drive powerful new insights into what’s happening on Planet Earth. We believe that such insights will unlock the answers to the most challenging of questions and conundrums about how we shape our world and the decisions we take that shape the security, well-being and prosperity of communities the world over.

We do this by providing high-resolution imagery data from a range of powerful satellite constellations at the forefront of technology, developed by partners such as Surrey Satellite Technologies Ltd. (SSTL), to take advantage of the radical reduction in the size and cost of the new generation of satellites.

We passionately believe that for the potential of planetary data to be fully realised such a stream of data from space must delivered on a Global, Timely and Assured basis – the motivation for all that we do in serving our customers.

In 2019 we will deploy our own constellation of small and highly capable Earth Observation satellites. These satellites will grow our capabilities in the supply of imagery data and powerful analytics to unlock the insights industries and governments require to make the decisions that increasingly shape our planet.

Meet the Earth-i Team

At Earth-i we pride ourselves on our team, their knowledge, and their varied experience across a number of industries.

As a team Earth-i will become a leading provider of very high-resolution satellite data and analytics.
