BlackSky Holdings and Palantir Technologies have completed a joint project aimed at integrating high-resolution imagery with deep analytics to provide real-time geointelligence and demonstrate the impact of global monitoring from space.
The pilot program combined BlackSky’s commercial satellite imagery and analytics and Palantir Foundry to demonstrate the capability to deploy worldwide intelligence that can potentially help in forecasting events for time-sensitive missions, BlackSky said Monday.
Spectra AI, BlackSky’s data platform, became the foundational layer that was incorporated into the Foundry, which serves as a software-defined data integration platform allowing automatic creation of data pipelines from the systems.
“The use of our data and analytics in these types of exercises drives demand for our geospatial intelligence as customers experience the rapid delivery of first-to-know insights that can inform proactive strategic decision making,” said Brian O’Toole, BlackSky CEO.
Shyam Sankar, chief operating officer of Palantir, noted that the combined capabilities also offer the users with “unprecedented control” on orbital sensors and AI insights for better and faster decisions.
