Constellations

Be the first to clearly observe change in your world, and to interpret what change means for your organisation. Be equipped to make the best decisions and the right response.

Earth-i provides Earth Observation data and services from the DMC3/TripleSat Constellation and the KOMPSAT series of satellites; all providing very high-resolution data. We’ve been helping businesses, governments, traders investors, NGOs and other organisations gain unique insight and clear competitive advantage since 2015. We’re working to ensure our customers maintain advantage for years to come – by building a large constellation of very high-resolution Earth Observation satellites with full motion, full video capability.
