The PlanetScope satellite constellation consists of multiple launches of groups of individual cubesats (DOVEs).
|Orbit Altitude||475 km - 525 km|
|Equator Crossing Time||9:30 - 11:30 am (local solar time)|
The PlanetScope constellation of 130+ DOVE satellites is able to image nearly all Earth's land every day.
The PlanetScope camera on each DOVE cubesat operates currently in eight bands - red edge, red, green, green I, yellow, blue, coastal blue and near infra-red.

ESA is offering, for scientific research and application development, access to data from the full archive of the PlanetScope missions upon submission and acceptance of a project proposal. These products are available as part of the Planet imagery offer.
ESA will support as many high-quality and innovative projects as possible within the quota limit available, therefore only a limited amount of products can be made available to each project.
The following data collections are available:
|PlanetScope Basic Scene Product||Scaled Top of Atmosphere Radiance (at sensor) and sensor corrected product. The Basic Scene product is designed for users with advanced image processing and geometric correction capabilities.
This product has scene based framing and is not projected to a cartographic projection. Radiometric and sensor corrections applied to the data.
|PlanetScope Ortho Scene Product||Orthorectified, scaled Top of Atmosphere Radiance (at sensor) or Surface Reflectance image product suitable for analytic and visual applications.
This product has scene based framing and is projected to a cartographic projection.
|PlanetScope Ortho Tile Product||Radiometric and sensor corrections applied to the data.
Imagery is orthorectified and projected to a UTM projection.
