Planet Labs

The FCC authorized Planet Labs to launch as many as 500 more identical NGSO satellites from the ISS.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) recently cleared Planet Labs’ request to launch and operate nongeostationary orbit (NGSO) Earth Exploration Satellite Service satellites. The company plans to launch up to 500 additional NGSO satellites from the International Space Station (ISS) that are physically and technically identical to those previously authorized.

Planet Labs has deployed more than 30 such satellites from the ISS, all of which operate under Call Sign S2912, into circular orbits at altitudes between 380 km and 410 km and an inclination of 51.6 degrees.

The additional satellites were authorized to transmit remote sensing and telemetry data to fixed Earth stations in the 8025-8400 MHz frequency band, receive command signals in the 2025-2110 MHz band, and may use the 401-402 MHz and 449.75-450.25 MHz bands for early phase and emergency-backup telemetry, tracking and command operations.
