Flock 2P 10



Every Flock 2p satellite contains the latest hardware and images in both Red Green Blue (RGB) and near infrared (NIR) bands. The enhanced onboard technology is just the first important component of this launch—the second is the Sun Synchronous Orbit. In this orbit our Doves will pass each spot on the ground at the same time every day. The resulting consistent sun angle makes it easy for the human eye (and computer vision algorithms) to spot changes in the imagery over time.
