SSTL launches the DMC3/TripleSat Constellation and kicks off a new era in commercial data from space.



Earth-i congratulates British satellite design and manufacturer Surrey Satellite Technologies Ltd. (SSTL) on the successful launch yesterday of the DMC3/TripleSat constellation. The three identical Earth observation satellites will supply very high resolution data for a wide range of applications, including change detection, urban planning and area mapping.

The constellation marks an important step on the commercialisation of data from space, with the combination of advanced optical sensors in a constellation of three identical platforms, offering daily revisit to any location on Earth.
