Flock 4P 6

NSSDCA/COSPAR ID: 2019-081P

Description

Flock 4P fourth-generation spacecraft will join the largest constellation of satellites ever deployed, upgrading Planet Labs’ imaging capabilities.

Each of the Planet Labs satellites, known individually as Doves, is built to the three-unit CubeSat standard measuring 30 by 10 by 10 centimeters (11.8 by 3.9 by 3.9 inches). The satellites can produce images at resolutions of up to three meters (9.8 feet), with their large constellation of low-cost, short-lived satellites allowing Planet Labs to provide customers near-real-time coverage with multiple images of the same location each day.
