Posted: Sun, Nov 26, 2017, 10:14 AM ET (1514 GMT)
Earth-i satellite (Earth-i) Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd. (SSTL) will build the first five Earth-imaging satellites for British company Earth-i. The satellites will be based on a prototype SSTL has built for Earth-i for launch in December on a PSLV; that is based on SSTL's Carbonite 1 technology-demonstration satellite launched in 2015. Earth-i will use the satellites to provide high-resolution images and video, with the goal of daily revisit capabilities once the full system of at least 15 satellites are in place. The first five satellites are planned for launch in 2019.
