About Us

EARTH-i is at the forefront of the commercialisation of space. Today we supply high-resolution image data services from the DMC3/TripleSat Constellation, KOMPSAT series of satellites and SuperView satellites to clients across the globe. Our range of services, from data processing to analytics, help the policy makers and innovators of today take more effective decisions, more rapidly.

Our vision is that a consistent flow of Earth Observation data will drive powerful new insights into what’s happening on Planet Earth, at any location and in near real-time. Such insights will unlock the answers to the most challenging of questions and drive the big decisions about how we manage our world to deliver security and prosperity for our communities.

In 2019 we will deploy our own constellation of small, agile Earth Observation satellites. These satellites will enable us to offer our clients world-leading video and still images from space, with a level of spatial and temporal resolution that’s never been seen before. Our goal is to unlock the powerful analytics and insights governments and industry require to make the decisions that increasingly shape our planet.

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