Screen-Shot-2014-03-05-at-12.02.58-PMThis imagery is from the world’s first commercially available, daily HD video satellite system. The footage, from Skybox Imaging’s SkySat-1 micro-satellite, is as mesmerizing as the implications are powerful. In a blog post this week, John Clark of SkyBox wrote: Businesses can, for the first time, monitor a network of globally distributed assets with full-motion snapshots without needing to deploy an aircraft or field team. The movement captured in these short video windows, up to 90 seconds in length, yields unique insights that improve operational decisions. The U.S. company’s vision is to “leverage timely satellite data to provide insight into daily global activity.” MORE
