SkySats 14 and 15 in SSL’s SmallSats manufacturing facility.

SSL, a Maxar Technologies company, shipped two Earth-observation satellites to Vandenberg Air Force Base where they will be launched on Spaceflight’s first sun-synchronous dedicated rideshare mission on Nov. 19, 2018, aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 launch vehicle. SSL manufactured SkySat 14 and 15 for commercial Earth-observation company Planet.

The imaging satellites feature 72-centimeter resolution and will be added to Planet’s SkySat constellation, which currently includes 11 SSL-built small satellites. The SkySat constellation complements Planet’s Dove constellation, with the most satellites on orbit from a commercial imagery provider.

Six of Planet’s SSL-built satellites were launched in 2017 and five were launched in 2016. SSL continues to manufacture additional SkySats for Planet in its SmallSat manufacturing facility, integrating improvements and increasing the cadence of delivery.
