UP42 has signed an agreement with HEAD Aerospace of Beijing to make image data from more than 40 innovative Chinese Earth Observation satellites available on the UP42 marketplace.

The broad selection of imaging capabilities from the constellations dramatically expands the range of applications in multiple sectors, with the most significant benefits expected in Infrastructure, Transportation, Utilities, Agriculture, Government.

The UP42 marketplace currently contains more than 50 geospatial data sets, including satellite imagery from six international organizations. The newly added satellites' diverse and often unique imaging capabilities include wide-swath imaging at very high resolution, nighttime acquisitions, frequent intraday revisits, tri-stereo collection, and hyperspectral imaging.

“This partnership is an important milestone for us as a company but, more importantly, for our customers. By diversifying our data sets, we are unlocking a broader spectrum of use cases for our users in multiple sectors. This is the true meaning of ‘democratizing access to Earth insights’,” said UP42 CEO Sean Wiid.

HEAD Aerospace is the international distributor of satellite imagery collected by commercial Earth Observation missions. The UP42-HEAD agreement includes imagery from multiple constellations, including SuperView, Earthscanner, Gaofen-7, DailyVision, NightVision, Hyperscan, and Tri-Stereo ZY3. These seven constellations will total more than 80 satellites by the end of 2021.
