SKYSAT C8 is a commercial Earth-imaging spacecraft owned by Planet, a San Francisco-based company. A SkySat satellite is about the size of a dorm room refrigerator—measuring 2.5 feet by 2 feet by 2 feet (95 by 60 by 60 centimeters). SkySats satellites collect imagery with resolution as sharp as 2.6 feet (80 centimeters). The strength of the SkySat multi-satellite constellation is its revisit capability, allowing rapid refresh views of imaging targets around the world, and the video recording capability is a unique offering in the commercial remote sensing market.
