Blacksky Pathfinder-1 is an earth imaging satellite of Spaceflight Industries. The satellite is equipped with payloads from Harris Corporation designed to image an area approximately 4.4 km x 6.6 km at 1-meter resolution.
This is first in a series of 60 satellites planned to deploy the BlackSky constellation that will provide near real-time images in about 90 minutes to produce images that are more current and wide-ranging to increase global transparency.
