Skybox Imaging Accelerates Constellation Deployment

Skybox Imaging (Skybox), an emerging provider of timely satellite imagery and data services, today announced it is adding an imaging satellite, SkySat-2, to its fleet during 2013 via a newly available secondary launch opportunity aboard a Soyuz-Fregat. Skybox has secured this launch opportunity by contracting with JSC Glavkosmos, a secondary payload launch provider within the Russian Federal Space Program that works on behalf of the Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos).

The previously unplanned spacecraft will substantially increase Skybox’s near-term imaging capacity and accelerate the availability of timely information products. Skybox can respond to new launch opportunities like this Soyuz launch because it is capable of building a high-resolution imaging satellite within nine months, thus demonstrating the company’s capability to scale to a near-term, multi-satellite constellation.

"The ability to build and launch a satellite with the capabilities of Skybox’s satellites in less than a year was impossible five years ago,” said Joe Rothenberg, technical advisory board chairman for Skybox and former director of Goddard Space Flight Center. “The convergence of launch opportunities, computing technologies and Skybox's Silicon Valley approach to aerospace enables the company to innovate more rapidly than other players in the industry.”

The satellite will launch alongside the Meteor-M weather satellite from the Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan. It will be a copy of Skybox’s first satellite, SkySat-1, planned for launch in 2013 aboard a Dnepr launch vehicle.
