New satellite manufacturing site of Planet Lab –

Planet Satellite Image Analyst Announces San Francisco's New Manufacturing Facility Planet, founded by former NASA employees, leverages a portion of the $ 183 million funds raised for growth. In the basement of an unspecified office building in the downtown of Harrison Street in San Francisco, the planet is enthusiastic about the construction of low-lift satellites that take pictures of changing planets. The new facility is the world's largest satellite manufacturing site.

In Production of a new 27,000 square feet A planetary engineer is a satellite building station that gathers "pigeon" like a machine is called. This new site represents six times the size of the old plant and in this new space the engineer says to produce up to 40 satellites in a week. Fluorescent panels illuminate industrial workstations and small satellites are plugged into the 'pigeons' nest.

Planet says that the satellite can be built with just 10 tools

The way Planet builds a satellite is different from the satellites of NASA and Lockheed Martin. Planet has the idea that many small satellites with surfaces of 1 to 3 years are used instead of making large and bulky machines that take up space to take photos using older technologies and older sensors. On this new site, Planet will take all aspects of spacecraft production together from R & D to manufacturing and testing.

So what exactly are these satellites doing? Each satellite can capture two images per second, Planet system Categorize images such as water, coral, river, road, infrastructure, forest.

Planet's philosophy is that you can not repair what you can not see. Partners in defense, humanities and agriculture use the following data.
