OmniEarth Announces Partnership to Create Global Satellite Constellation and Extensive Hosted Payload Opportunity

OmniEarth LLC announced a partnership with Harris Corp., Draper Laboratory and Dynetics to create a constellation of satellites to deliver high resolution analytics-grade, multispectral imagery data and products, and hosted payloads to commercial and government customers. Imagery data and products will be for subscribers in the agriculture, energy, natural resources, mobile services and government communities. The planned OmniEarth constellation of up to 18 satellites will cover 100% of the Earth once per day. OmniEarth's imagery and analytics will enhance users' ability to detect, analyze, react to and predict economic and environmental change in near real time. As part of the hosted payload partnership, Harris Corporation will integrate the hosted payloads using Harris' AppStarTM reconfigurable, multi-mission payload platform to support marketing efforts for leveraging the available capacity for secondary missions. OmniEarth is partnering with Dynetics to develop and manufacture the satellites at Dynetics' new Solutions Complex, which was built to support assembly-line production. OmniEarth's satellites are based on Dynetics' TerraSenseTM, a high-bandwidth and maneuverable small satellite platform. In an earlier project, Dynetics manufactured FASTSAT (Fast, Affordable, Science and Technology Satellite) in less than 10 months using off-the-shelf technology and agile processes at half the cost of a "traditional" satellite and successfully carried six payloads to space. Draper Laboratory is providing overall systems specification and systems engineering for the effort, ensuring that the design and its implementation ensures mission success.
